Geneva library to consider search firms

GENEVA – Geneva Library officials will be considering proposals from two search firms to help find a new library director at a special meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday at 127 James St., Geneva.

Board members will be interviewing and questioning representatives of John Keister and Associates of Chicago and Calaberry Consulting of River Forest. Both executive search firms have experience in helping libraries find new directors, according to their websites.

Calaberry Consulting successfully completed executive searches from 2011-2014 for the Sugar Grove Public Library, as well as Carol Stream, Homewood, Hodgkins, Oak Park and Elmwood Park.

Alice Calabrese-Berry, a principal consultant of the firm, facilitated the Sugar Grove Library’s search for its current director, Carol Dolin, in 2011.

John Keister and Associates does nationwide executive searches for public libraries, as well as in the fields of engineering, science and math, according to its website.

According to the agenda, board members are expected to approve the hiring of a search firm.

Geneva library trustees are searching for a new library director after Matt Teske resigned last month. The board majority accepted his resignation, then appointed him as an assistant director.

The board appointed Marilyn Boria as temporary interim director. It hopes to find a new director by July 1. Boria also served as interim director in Sugar Grove while its board looked for a new director.
