Interim Director Appointed

At a special meeting of the New City Library trustees Tuesday night, the board unanimously voted to appoint Maurice J. (Mitch) Freedman as interim director of the library. This action alleviates concerns about the library's charter and marks a turning point in the working relations between board members. Freedman served as the director of the Westchester Library System for 23 years and as president of the American Library Association in 2002. Since his retirement, Freedman has worked for his publishing company, the U*N*A*B*A*S*H*E*D Librarian. In addition, he has spoken at conferences, served on numerous boards, and has taken on the roles of interim director at the Purchase Free and Nyack libraries.
