The McDon­ald County Li­brary is ac­tively seek­ing a new leader af­ter li­brary di­rec­tor Kim Schnei­der left her post af­ter just five months.

Schnei­der’s last day was Aug. 1, said McDon­ald County In­terim Di­rec­tor Retha Mitchell. Schnei­der came on board in Fe­bru­ary.

Now li­brary of­fi­cials are seek­ing a com­mu­nity-minded di­rec­tor to man­age the daily ad­min­is­tra­tive ac­tiv­i­ties of the li­brary.

The li­brary serves a pop­u­la­tion of 23,000 county res­i­dents, has four full-time and five part-time po­si­tions and has a $300,000 an­nual op­er­at­ing bud­get.

The di­rec­tor over­sees the main li­brary, which is lo­cated in Pineville, with a branch in Noel and a branch in South­west City, Mitchell said.

The board of di­rec­tors hopes to find a qual­i­fied ap­pli­cant as soon as pos­si­ble, but does not have a spe­cific time frame to do so, Mitchell said.

“The board is work­ing ag­gres­sively to fill the po­si­tion,” she said. “We’ve had a lot of in­ter­est.”

Any­one in­ter­ested in learn­ing more about the po­si­tion, can visit the McDon­ald County Li­brary page on Face­book.
