Public invited to meet with EBR library director candidate | Events
The public will have an opportunity to ask questions and give their input on the lone finalist for the East Baton Rouge Parish Library director’s job.
Assistant Directors Mary Stein and Patricia Husband talked about the candidate as well as new library construction at the Press Club Monday afternoon.
E. Spencer Watts who is currently the library director for the Mobile, Alabama Public Library will visit Baton Rouge on Aug. 17 and Aug. 18.
Watts will give a presentation about his vision for the library on Friday, Aug. 17 at the Jones Creek Regional branch library, 6222 Jones Creek Road, at 7 p.m. Then he will be interviewed by the Library Board of Control Ad Hoc Committee on Saturday, Aug. 18. The public is invited to both events. Attendees will be able to ask questions Friday and make comments after the interview on Saturday.
"It's not an automatic guarantee that he will be offered the job and certainly not an automatic guarantee that he will take it," Stein says. "The salary is not higher than what he's making now. I believe it's comparable."
