Saugerties Times – 7.6.13 – by Sharyn Flanagan – The former director, Sukrit Goswami, resigned to accept a position as executive director at a library consortium near Philadelphia. Staff librarian, Tiffany Lydecker, will act as interim director until a new director is found.
The projects that Goswami is most proud of are an e-reading lending program and digitizing the local history collection.
“Applications for the library director position will be accepted through the end of July or until the position is filled. According to Leahy, the process of hiring a new director is a slow one, with much “dotting of i’s and crossing of t’s” to consider before making a final decision. It will likely be September or October before the new director is appointed, she says, and even then, whomever is appointed will serve in a probationary capacity until they pass the civil service exam for Library Director I and score within the top three slots.”
