Prior to coming to New City, Freedman served as the interim director for the Purchase Free and Nyack libraries.

Director’s Report to the Board of Trustees for July

Summary statement

It was a good month.  I continue to enjoy working at the New City Library.  The staff have been wonderful partners who do their utmost to serve the patrons of the Library.  There have been speed bumps here and there, but overall I still enjoy the opportunity to work with the staff and the Board to maintain and improve the quality of library collections, services, and facilities.  I have been especially happy to enjoy the benefits of staff cooperation and board support.

I identified a number of areas that needed to be addressed.  Not surprisingly they cannot all be addressed at once.  Following is a progress report plus anything new that has come up.

Better Than Google

One of the best things about having long-standing employment is that you don't feel the need to update your resume.  Well, since you never know when opportunity will come knocking, or whether you will be out of work tomorrow, it is a good idea to have an current resume.  No one likes the chore of creating or updating a resume, but the library has a powerful tool that takes the writing out of writing a resume.  That tool is Cypress Resumes. As they say on their site, with Cypress Resumes, there is no need to compose anything, ever.
