MURRAY LIBRARY WELCOMES A NEW DIRECTOR
As the Murray Library completes its centennial year celebration, there will be a new library director with a new vision for the future. After 18 years as the Murray Library Director and 42 years of library service, Dan Barr is retiring at the end of August. Beginning September 24th, Kim Fong will become the new director. Kim plans to continue on the same successful path that has already been established for Murray Library by continuing the tradition of great customer service and providing excellent programs for children and youth. The Murray Library will continue to foster a spirit of unity through community partnerships, by reaching out to under-served populations, and by making the library a center of community activities. It is her feeling that the library is more than the materials it holds; it is the people that use the library and the staff that provide services that make the Murray Library a vibrant, relevant and essential part of the community. Library Board President Gamal Herbon said, "Dan has been a wonderful part of the Murray Library for the past 18 years and we appreciate all he has done for the library and the community. We look forward to working with Kim in the continued growth of the library and meeting the changing needs of our patrons."
