PL Director Resigns in Monroe County, NY

By LJ Staff

Carol Nersinger on March 21 quietly tendered her resignation as director of the Monroe County Library System, Rochester, NY, after less than a year’s tenure. Paula Smith, assistant director of central services, was appointed interim director until a successor is hired. Irving Kessler, a Monroe County board member, told the Democrat & Chronicle that the move was ‘unfortunate, but it had to be.’ Neither Nersinger nor other board explained to the press the reasons behind her sudden departure. Kessler remarked only that it was a ‘very, very sensitive issue.’
