The search for a new executive director for the Hayner Public Library District will begin later this month. The library board recently voted to remove long-time executive director Jeff Owen. Interim Executive Director Bernadett Duvernoy says nothing will happen until the next board meeting on May 23.
Owen had worked for the library since the mid-1990's, and has been Executive Director since 2003. She says she is not sure if she will seek the full-time job, adding that the number of qualified applicants may skyrocket if the search goes nationwide.
