From the Director's Desk - Announcing the arrival of Lunenburg Library’s new Adult Services Librarian, Muir Haman!

Muir's primary focus in this role will be providing collection development for Audio and Large Print books, as well as planning and organizing adult programs.  Muir also acts as Assistant Director, with responsibility for many operational areas.  Muir has a Masters in Library & Information Science, as well as an MA and BA in English Literature.  We are thrilled to have someone with the depth of his experience and knowledge!

I think Muir describes himself quite well on his blog:  “Writer, librarian, indexer, teacher, entrepreneur.  I help people find the information for which they are looking – whether they are researching, writing as exploration, learning new skills, sharing their passions with the world, feeding their curiosity, or figuring out how to learn.”

Muir grew up in the local area but eventually moved to Vermont.  In February of this year he moved to Lunenburg to be closer to family.  The entire staff is very happy to have Muir here – he simply slid into his new position!  It already feels like he is part of our LPL family!  Please drop by and meet Lunenburg’s new librarian.
