The city of Kodiak has a new librarian. Kathleen Baxter has been offered the job that became vacant after long-time librarian Joe D’Elia retired this summer.
In a release, City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski said Baxter was chosen from a field of eight applicants. No specific details about Baxter’s experience or background, or where she’s from was included in the statement from city hall, but it did say she had over 30 years of experience in public, private and academic libraries.
Baxter is quoted as saying she’s looking forward to serving the Kodiak community, and she will arrive in mid October.
