We welcome our new (potential) librarian leaders!

Thursday, July 20, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano

At least one department is moving forward with its search for a new director, and this week the city is asking you to join in on the fun with a town hall meeting with the final candidates for director of Libraries. The town hall will feature the final five candidates (out of a pool of 51 resumes) for the position. Finalists will give a short speech before taking audience questions. Following the more formal part of the evening, a meet-and-greet will allow the audience to mingle with the candidates. After that, Assistant City Manager Sara Hensley will decide which candidates will move on to a final interview with Interim City Manager Elaine Hart. The town hall will take place on Thursday, July 27, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Carver Branch of Austin Public Library.
