Beloit Public Library Close to Making Decision on New Director
Link to July 23 Beloit Daily News article, "City of Beloit looking to hire three".
Excerpt: The City of Beloit is looking to fill three positions: transit supervisor, library director and assistant to the city manager.
City officials have had difficulty finding suitable candidates for the first two positions, with searches still continuing after six months to over a year.
The library board, however, is coming close to finding a new director, according to board member Carl Balson.
After hiring a recruiter earlier this year, three candidates have been selected to be interviewed next week.
“They’re very good people,” Balson said. “Any one of the three would do us well.”
The candidates include: Tom Carson, the head of reference services at the Kenosha Public Library, Carol Foreman, the reference director at the Aurora Public Library in Colorado, and Kristi Howe, the head of youth services at the Helen Plum Memorial Library in Lombard, Ill.
