Sample Cover Letter For Library Manager Position

Dear Mr. Simpson,

As an individual who understands the importance of books and media in today’s society I read with great interest your advertisement for the School Librarian position currently available. I have a solid understanding that today’s school libraries involve incorporating all forms of media in addition to books in order to prepare children for working in today’s world. With a Master’s Degree in Library Science and K-12 teaching certification I believe I have the needed skills to excel.

I focus on assisting children with learning through the use of technology and books. As a media expert I also assist teachers with incorporating books and media into lesson planning. I have experience with supervising both student library assistants and paraprofessional staff.In addition to my credentials I have been a School Librarian for over eight years and know I would be an excellent choice. I carefully and skillfully impart a love of reading and learning to students. I am patient and helpful to students at all times.

Highland Elementary School will make an excellent choice in choosing me as your next School Librarian. I look forward to meeting with you in person to further discuss the position. Please call to schedule an interview.

Sincerely,

Marissa Shields
