Search Extended for New Director

The Library Board of Trustees announced today that it plans to reopen the search for a new library director. The Board  will work closely with City of Champaign staff and the search firm Bradbury Associates/Gossage Sager Associates to review the parameters of the new search, including a new timeline. Interim Library Director Donna Pittman is leading the Champaign Public Library during this transition.
