As many of you know I am a Library Trustee for our town. Our library director; Janet Angus announced her retirement this summer and so the trustees went about the daunting task of interviewing candidates in an effort to find someone to replace her.
As a committee we spent early mornings interviewing, time on Skype and on the telephone, and we also spent hours reading applications and supportive material, and when all was said and done, it was abundantly clear that the person most qualified for the position was right under our noses the entire time.
Yvette Couser, who was the Merrimack Children’s librarian and who is now the Merrimack Library Director is exactly what we were looking for: current, enthusiastic, Social Media savvy, knowledgeable, and someone who works great with the public.
Yvette will be a fabulous director for our library and I have a feeling that she is going to fit into her new position just fine.
