Interesting place to work. Not for everyone.
I will preface this by saving I came here from a large, extremely diverse library system. Some people had worked in libraries their whole lives, and others had just came from other careers. Most were friendly and willing to get to know
one another, no matter where they came from. The Sno-Isle Library System has so far been the complete opposite of that experience. People here act the same, talk the same, and unfortunately, do not represent all of what the communities are that they serve. My first day had people of other ethnicities literally staring at me with their mouths wide open, and one told me, “Wow, we never see people like you working here!” That was my first warning bell. Add to that a lack of direction from managers, pressure to handle multiple (as in 10+) projects at one time, and do an abundance of things on top of that everyday forced me to seek other opportunities. None of these job duties were disclosed during the interview process (of course not... otherwise I would not have taken the position) so I am truly saddened that I have to leave.
Competitive pay, many libraries in their system
