Tacoma’s Odencrantz One Finalist for Denver Job

By LJ Staff

We don’t know who all four finalists are for the top Denver Public Library job, but Tacoma Public Library director Susan Odencrantz is one of the group. The Tacoma News Tribune reported last week that Odencrantz was visiting Denver for several days of interviews. The Denver Public Library Commission hired Dubberly Garcia Associates, Inc. to run a nationwide recruitment effort. Including Rick Ashton, who retired at the end of February, only eight people have held the title of Denver City Librarian since 1889. Letty Icolari, the library’s Director of Human Resources, is Interim City Librarian.
