For the fourth time in a little more than three years, the Chelsea District Library is looking for a new director.
That’s the lead line to this story in the Ann Arbor News. For a small-town library, that’s an extraordinary track record of failure in the retention department, especially one with such incredible programs and facilities. Certainly it can’t be the pay (although I’m trying to dig up some salary info). And being in Chelsea, while not terribly big, must have some prestige; CDL was named Best Small Library in the country last year.
So, what’s story at McKune? Or, more likely, what’s the store at the board meetings? Are the rumors true? How does one go about effecting change on a Library Board?
