Meet Newport’s new library director

The Newport Public Library staff and the Newport Library Foundation invite people to meet Newport’s new library director, Laura Kimberly, on Tuesday, May 7. 

The foundation will host a reception from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the main floor of the library. Bilingual storytime will meet at its regular scheduled time at 7 p.m.

Kimberly was most recently with Jackson County Library Services, where she was the assistant director of public services. She is a firm believer that libraries are, and should always strive to be much more than simply a large collection of books and other media. “They’re community hubs,” she said. “There’s something for everybody at the library.”
