Hampshire library will get director soon
The Ella Johnson Memorial Library District in Hampshire should have a new library director by mid-February, library board President Barbara Brust said Monday.
Former library director Carol Schrey resigned earlier this month after six years because her husband got a job transfer out of town. Schrey's last day was Jan. 2.
"Carol's resignation was just met with sadness as she did an excellent job when she came in," Brust said. "She kind of took over what the board wanted done. She instituted so many new programs and staff training."
The library board hired the consulting firm John Kleister & Associates to find a replacement. The board interviewed four prospective candidates and an offer letter has been sent out to one candidate, Brust said.
The library, at State Street and Washington Avenue, has been in existence since 1936, and serves more than 16,000 residents in Hampshire Township and parts of Burlington, Plato and Rutland townships.
