Rumor Has It...

that the Middletown Library Director just resigned. Alas, things haven't been going well there. A number of resignations have taken place under his leadership & evidently the local Union (NEARI- no, it's not just teachers) there has taken a vote of "no confidence" which bespeaks management and organizations problems.

It should also be noted that the librarian lives in Sturbridge, Mass.- almost two hours away. With a 4 hr. daily commute, this amounts to another part-time job in itself & this is given as the reason for this departure.

What a pity. A decent library with really good working conditions & a decent salary. The only thing that I find it is lacking in is- materials!
