Throughout our lives, many of us will find ourselves in a season of drift or insecurity. Unmoored and untethered to a comfortable and firm foundation, like a boat without an anchor, it is in these times that we find ourselves searching for truth, connection, and stability. We find ourselves drawn to hope.

What’s the best thing about being a librarian? For me, the best thing about being a librarian is the ability to work with a variety of people and to learn (both good and bad) from the experiences. Having worked at a variety of libraries over the years, I have been blessed to work with many great colleagues and customers and have loved learning about their lives and sharing my life with them.
Montana Bible College seeks a qualified and talented person to be our Library Director. As a small Bible college (currently about 70 students), this is a part-time role (A
possibility exists to combine it with an assistant to one of the vice presidents, making a full-time position) if both jobs fit the same person.).
This is an opportunity to work in a relational environment where other staff and the students are known by name and we can share life together. It’s an opportunity to work in a Christian ministry setting where our work makes a direct Kingdom impact.

What’s the best thing about being a librarian? Connecting people with resources (people, print, electronic, counseling, training, etc.) to help them go beyond what they envisioned for their areas of interest or expertise. Be a sounding board to people see ways they could expand or enhance their ministry/mission.
While working in the public library my understanding of who the “least of these” were grew as I daily interacted with those who are marginalized in society: the homeless, those who are technologically challenged, those who aren’t comfortable speaking English, the recently released from prison, and those whom society seems to have forgotten for whatever reason.
