Beware the Ides of March.
There are 5 people who are interested in her position and through my meager inter-branch networking, I have 2 names. I just hope that whomever replaces her is just as great a supervisor as she is. She is the best supervisor I have had while in the library system. She's young, she's into technology, she has excellent people skills, she's very intelligent and has a high emotional intelligence. The Library is doing a horrible job of preparing/nurturing/encouraging current employees for succession into management positions.
Libraries are HORRIBLE when it comes to planning for the future. If public libraries ever go the way of the dinosaur, the giant asteroid would be the librarians at the helm.
