Library News

By Henry Bryant
The East Atlanta Library has been without a children’s librarian since Heather Draft left in the fall to move back north. She had been a favorite of kids and parents since arriving a year ago. Then last month East Atlanta’s Branch Manager Librarian Kenneth Wayne Thompson tendered his resignation after seven years serving at the branch. Kenneth has moved on to become the Director of Libraries in Davenport, Iowa and is now also off to a colder climate.
The children’s librarian position at the East Atlanta Library has not yet been filled by a full time staff person, although extra staffing has been provided from other branches on a temporary basis. Library hours have also been cut recently to cover county budget shortfalls making staffing easier. Meanwhile, librarian Shannon Duffy has been brought in as interim Branch Manager. With lots of experience as a children’s librarian at other branches in the system, she has lots to offer at the branch in light of the current staffing situation. She lives in southeast Atlanta and is very familiar with East Atlanta and the surrounding area. If you haven’t met her yet, stop in and say hello!
