Pelham Library officials accept jailed director's resignation. (North Andover Eagle-Tribune, 3/16/2012)
Jailed director Robert Rice Jr. has checked out of Pelham Public Library.
Trustees yesterday confirmed they have accepted Rice's resignation, submitted in November, after consultations with legal counsel.
"The board confirms the acceptance of Mr. Rice's resignation after seeking advice of counsel and determining that Mr. Rice could not be reinstated as a probationary employee," the trustees said in a written statement.
There was no immediate word on a search for a successor.
Trustees likely will discuss what's next when they meet Monday night.
Carol Roberts, former Wilton Public Library director, has been the interim director in Pelham.
She said she is willing to continue as interim director while trustees recruit a new director, but she isn't a candidate for the permanent post.\
