New County Librarian to Start Monday, February 9

Please join us in welcoming new County Librarian, Darla Wegener! She will be starting on Monday, February 9.

As County Librarian, Wegener will be responsible for all aspects of the Tulare County Public Library's programs and services, including the review and management of the library's $5 million annual budget. High on the list of program priorities is a commitment to maintaining and growing the "READ TO SUCCEED" Adult Literacy Program, which provides one-on-one tutoring services and conversation circles at the Literacy Center. The Librarian also directly supervises the Deputy County Librarian, Literacy Coordinator, Department Secretary, as well as indirectly supervises a library staff of 40 located at all 15 library branches.
