Public invited to interview two new library candidates

The search for a new regional library manager for Aberdeen Timberland Library continues and the public is invited to help interview two finalists for the job from 9 to 10 Monday morning.

Both new candidates, Mary Givins and Brandi Resendez, are from out of state and traveling here at their own expense, said Timberland Communications Manager Jeff Kleingartner.

He does not believe either candidate has been out here to be interviewed before.

A search on Google unearthed two librarians from other states with the same names; Kleingartner would not confirm whether that information is accurate or where they currently work, citing privacy reasons.

He did not respond to a question as to why their locations weren’t revealed when their names were released and they will be be part of a public forum where their credentials will presumably be provided.

Two local candidates were considered finalists earlier, but the library decided to reopen the search. The position pays between $58,119 to $80,451, Kleingartner said.

The new manager will replace Christine Peck who retired in November.

The meeting will be held in the periodicals section downstairs.

After the public interview, a committee from Timberland will interview each candidate individually.
