Georgia: Charles Pace Named Director of Gwinnett County Public Library
From the Gwinnett Daily Post:
Charles Pace, the former leader of the county library system in St. Louis, Mo., will be Gwinnett’s new library director.
The system’s board of trustees appointed Pace during a specially called meeting Friday, agreeing to a $125,000 annual salary for the new leader, a replacement for Nancy Stanbery-Kellam, who was ousted in June.
Pace is expected to begin work the first week of January.
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Pace’s resignation in July came as a surprise, not long after voters approved the first tax increase for the library system in 30 years.
Reached via telephone [last] Friday evening, Pace declined to give specifics about his departure but said he was looking forward to a new challenge in Gwinnett, a system he has heard about since its 2000 win for Library of the Year.
