The search committee created to find Belmont Public Library’s next Library Director will be getting an “overdue” notice after the group rejected what is now the first round of finalist candidates.
“I will stay on until the end of December,” said Maureen Conners, the current Library Director, despite that her retirement party is set. (Nov. 13, 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.)
Conners statement came days after the committee put in place by the Belmont Board of Library Trustees voted on a second round of balloting that none of the finalist were qualified for the position. The vote occurred after the unknown number of candidates were interviewed by the committee in October.
The board had announced in August when Conners announced her retirement that a new director would likely be installed by mid-November. Now the earliest the town’s next “head librarian” will be selected is after the New Year.
The director’s salary range is $76,859 to $109,140 commensurate with experience and includes a full benefits package, according to the job notice released in the summer.
