There is a checkout of note at the Lawrence Public Library.
Susan Brown, the marketing director of the Lawrence Public Library, soon will be leaving to become the library director for the city of Chapel Hill, N.C.
According to the Web site of the city of Chapel Hill (which, by the way, promotes itself as “the southern part of heaven”), Brown will start her new job on May 20.
It will be a bit of a homecoming for Brown, who received her master’s degree in library science from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and previously was a reference librarian in Raleigh, N.C. No word yet on whether she has to buy a harp to move to Chapel Hill or not. (Or since it is southern, perhaps a fiddle will do.)
Also no word yet on what the Lawrence Public Library’s plans are for filling the library’s marketing position.
