San Francisco's Next City Librarian

Hawkins CompanyThe City and County of San Francisco has engaged The Hawkins Company, an executive search firm, to assist in identifying and recruiting candidates to serve as the new City Librarian for San Francisco Public Library.

Three community engagement meetings (November 7, 8 and 10) were held and an online survey was available (November 6-16) to allow those interested to share their thoughts and ideas about the qualifications, qualities and characteristics that would make an ideal candidate for the San Francisco City Librarian.

We want to thank everyone who participated in the public meetings and the survey. Your input will help The Hawkins Company recruit City Librarian candidates tailored to San Francisco’s needs. On December 13, 2018, The Hawkins Company will present a draft recruitment brochure to the Library Commission. Following approval of the brochure, active candidate recruitment will begin.
