Library will begin search for new director

Posted by lclemons on

The Crown Point Community Library will begin searching, mid-February, for a new library director as Selina Gomez-Beloz resigned to accept a position at the Waukegan Public Library. Gomez-Beloz announced on January 18 she would be leaving; her last day will be February 15.

“This was not an easy decision, but one that meets the needs of my family, my career growth, and personal growth,” Gomez-Beloz announced to her staff.

Gomez-Beloz arrived in December 2014 and has left her special mark with many literary initiatives and processes that will keep the library moving forward in the future.

The Board of Trustees will hold an Executive Session on Monday, February 5 at 5:00 p.m. with a special board meeting to follow. The Board will be posting the Director position internally, with the possibility of conducting a national search beginning sometime in mid-February.  The public is welcome to attend the special board meeting.

As the search gets underway, updates will be posted on the library’s website and Facebook page.
