Meet Our New Director


The Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the hiring of a new library director, Glynis Hart. Glynis assumed her position on October 14. 

Glynis Hart
A journalist for 20 years, Glynis began as a freelance writer for regional publications in the Ithaca area of central New York, and in 2008 became the managing editor of the Finger Lakes Community Newspapers, a group of nine weeklies. In this capacity she managed reporters, did her own writing, and laid out three of the papers every week.

In 2016 she joined the Adirondack Daily Enterprise as a staff reporter for a daily newspaper in her hometown of Saranac Lake, New York, and in 2018 she moved to Claremont and served as a staff reporter at the Eagle Times before becoming the managing editor.
A graduate of Wells College in Aurora, New York, Glynis majored in comparative literature and French and spent a semester abroad in Dakar, Senegal.

As a journalist she had the opportunity to interview many directors of rural libraries and was impressed by the scope and creativity of programs that are offered. Consequently, she brings many ideas to the table as she embarks on this new phase of her professional life.
