Meet and greet with ICPL’s new Library Director


The Iowa City Public Library Friends Foundation invites the public to meet the Library’s new director, Elsworth Carman, on Thursday, May 16, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the first floor gallery near the Children's Room.

Carman, who assumed his new role in January, received his master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Information Studies. Prior to joining ICPL, Carman spent two-and-a-half years working in Marion, first as director of the Marion Public Library, then as a city administrator. He previously was a manager at the Oak Park Public Library in Illinois.

The community is welcome to stop by for cookies and conversation anytime during the two-hour window, though brief formal remarks will be made at 4:15 p.m.

For more information, contact the Library at 319-356-5200.
