We are excited to announce the new director of the South Berwick Public Library is Lee Shaw. He will start work here in town at the end of October at the time Karen McCarthy Eger retires.
A North Carolina native, Lee received both his bachelor’s degree in Latin American Studies and his master’s in Information Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has worked as a children’s librarian for both the Wake County, NC and Brooklyn, NY library systems and was previously the director of the New Gloucester Public Library. His interests include reading, hiking, cooking, and playing bass guitar in his band. As a newcomer to Maine, Lee has been especially excited by kayaking to islands in the Casco Bay and getting to experience beautiful, snowy winters. He is working to become a whoopie pie connoisseur, but has much more studying to do.
Drop by to meet him and welcome him to South Berwick!
