The Wilder Memorial Library

has Great News for February 2020!

The Board of Trustees of the Wilder Memorial Library is pleased to announce that Jessica Clapp has accepted the position of Director of the Library and that Christine Mix has accepted the newly-created position of Assistant Librarian. Most of you probably already know Jessica and Christine as they have been acting as co-interim library directors since December when Randall Szott departed to pursue his career as a state legislator from Barnard. The Board is delighted that the two have agreed to continue to work together for the benefit of the Library and our community. Both Jessica and Christine are honored to be accepting their positions.
