The finalists to be the new executive director of Pierce County Library System will be formally introduced to the public March 7 during a digital presentation that will include an opportunity to learn about them, ask them questions, and hear their ideas for the future of the libraries.

The session is scheduled for 4 to 6:40 p.m. at (Passcode: 816682).

There are three finalists, whose names haven’t yet been released publicly. They will be interviewed March 8 by the PCLS Board of Trustees as one of the final steps in picking a successor to Georgia Lomax, who will retire soon after 14 years as the library system’s executive director.

The board has conducted a nationwide search the last few months for candidates. The process was assisted by an executive search firm, Bradbury Miller Associates. A representative of the Ohio-based firm will be the moderator for the public’s introduction to the finalists.

The PCLS executive director heads an organization with a $43 million budget, 20 library locations, and 334 employees. The position has a hiring salary of $177,000.
