Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher incomes. The average beginner in this position makes around $35K, but folks who have been around for five to 10 years see a markedly higher median salary of $43K. On average, School Librarians make $50K following one to two decades on the job. Folks who have racked up more than 20 years in the field report incomes that aren't that much higher than less experienced individuals' earnings; the veterans make just $57K on average.
