The mission of the Wilder Memorial Library is to provide the greater Weston Community with access to the educational, cultural, recreational and research benefits of a free public library.
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.
Jessica is experienced in public relations, marketing, and communications as well as management. She greatly impressed the Search committee with her ideas to help the Library create an important community hub for the Weston community. She has two daughters in Flood Brook School and is excited to find new ways to attract youth to the Library.
Christine is a freelance teaching artist, designing and teaching children’s library and art programs throughout Vermont, and a children’s book illustrator and author. She is very excited about working with Jessica to help grow the Library, especially using her skills and talents to provide more art programming for youth.
