Meeting Thursday, the Westchester Public Library Board agreed to reconvene June 30 at 7:30 p.m. at Thomas Library to interview candidates for a board vacancy.

The candidate chosen will be recommended to the Duneland School Board for appointment to replace 15-year WPL board member John Corso, who is moving out of the library district; his current term expires in March. The Library Board typically makes a recommendation to its appointing authorities when a vacancy on the seven-member board occurs.

In a related matter, WPL library director Phil Baugher said next month he will begin the search for possibly two new employees to share the responsibilities currently held by assistant director Jane Walsh-Brown, who plans to retire at year’s end. She is also curator of the WPL-operated Westchester Township History Museum.

Baugher said he hopes to have the staff changes approved by the Library Board and become effective October 1 so the employee(s) can work with Walsh-Brown prior to her retirement.
