Interim Librarian Expected Shortly

Lamar Library

“The Lamar Library Advisory Board has been exceptionally helpful in providing a list of local candidates to act as the city’s interim librarian while we search for a full-time replacement,” explained Lamar City Administrator, John Sutherland, late last week.  The city had announced the retirement of Debbie Reynolds as Librarian for the Lamar Public Library and that a search would be underway to replace her.

“Debbie Reynolds has done an outstanding job for us since she came to Lamar in 2000, expanding our outreach programs, bringing the library up to date with social media and electronic alternatives for the public, and she was instrumental in securing new shelving and furniture for the library with funding left over from the 2004 renovation project,” Sutherland added.  He said Reynolds plans to spend more time with her family and we’re sorry to lose her.  Working from a list of local candidates provided by the board, the city should be able to select an individual to hold the librarian position while a search for a permanent replacement is underway.
