Board appoints acting director

URBANA — The Urbana Free Library has a new acting executive director.

Following an 85-minute closed session to talk about personnel on Tuesday night, the Urbana Free Library Board named Associate Director Kathy Wicks as the acting executive director, effective immediately.

Board President Chris Scherer said the previous executive director, Deb Lissak, will remain on the payroll.

"We have a contract with her, so she will remain on the payroll," Scherer said.

Meanwhile, the board agreed to hold a special meeting at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 27 in the library's auditorium to talk about, among other things, the criteria for a national search for a permanent executive director.
