The Library’s Board of Trustees is pleased to announce that Erich Reed will begin work as our new Director on June 18. Reed has been the Librarian at George Stevens Academy in Blue Hill for twelve years. Prior to that, he was Assistant Director at the Blue Hill Public Library. He holds a Masters in Library Science from Dalhousie University and a B.A. in American Studies from Brandeis University. He moved to Mount Desert Island with his family several years ago.
Reed says, “In the past few years since my family moved to MDI, I've loved getting to know the Southwest Harbor Public Library as a vibrant community hub. I look forward to engaging with the community and staff to continue the Library's role as a cultural center and a public resource for life-long learning.”
Please come to the Library to meet Erich and welcome him to the community!
