On Wednesday, Feb. 9, and Thursday, Feb. 10, patrons and community members were invited to attend virtual public forums featuring Tom Fay and Chad Helton, the finalists in the Library Board of Trustees’ national search for the next Executive Director and Chief Librarian of The Seattle Public Library.
During the forums, Mr. Fay and Mr. Helton each joined Library Board president Carmen Bendixen and vice president Jay Reich for a conversation about their respective backgrounds, experience and visions for The Seattle Public Library, and then took questions submitted by the public.
