New library head announced at trustee meeting

March 16, 2013 by  

The Mt. Kisco Village Board of Trustees recently announced that a new director, Kathryn Feeley, has started working at the Mt. Kisco Public Library.

The announcement of Feeley’s taking over the top administrative job in the library was made in a letter written by trustees of the library to the village board, and no doubt flyer printing and poster printing will be used to make those frequent the library aware of the new director, so as to welcome her to the community.

Feeley’s new position represents a move from big city libraries to ones in small villages. She has had many years’ experience in the public libraries of Cleveland, including being the manager of two branch libraries in the system. The letter noted that Feeley consistently impressed the board with her passion and love for libraries during a recruiting process of some considerable length. She replaces Susan Reilly, who left to take a similar position at the library in Mamaroneck about a year ago.

The Mt. Kisco Public Library recently moved to a new building, which has enabled it to provide such amenities as a wide collection of DVDs and audiobooks, an information center for jobs, and a Community Room boasting a capacity of 150 people. Some new activities and events have also been added, such as story times for children, discussion groups on books, and free guest passes to various institutions likethe American Museum of Natural History in New York City and the Neuberger Museum.
