DIRECTOR’S REPORT
June 2012
 
  1. Staff updates:
Mary Ann Costello, our processing clerk who has been with the library for almost 13 years, has resigned her position. She will be moving in with her daughter, who lives in the Mundelein/Libertyville area. Mary Ann was working very minimal hours and existing staff will be absorbing her job duties. Hannah Crowe, the student in the JHS Transitions programs, is also no longer working at the library. We are also thrilled to have Chandler Ellison back from college for the summer. Chandler is taking afternoon shelving hours (in place of Hannah) and filling in at the front desk during vacations and such.
