The Rossland Public Library has named Beverley Rintoul as director.

Rintoul has been with the library for 16 years and brings her knowledge of the local community and the larger library community to the position.

"The library has been part of the community since 1939," said Rintoul. "A lot has changed in that time but we will continue to put the community's needs first."

Rintoul has been part of the changes implemented over the past year, taking the Summer Reading Club to the Mountain Market and starting the popular monthly Lego Club.

The library has also received a Columbia Basin Trust SchoolWorks grant for a second year.

This grant has enabled them to hire high school student Devin Knox as a youth services clerk. Knox will take up her post assisting patrons and running the Tuesday Teen Night early in October.
