Prince George Public Library Board chair Mike Gagel announced the appointment of Paul Burry to the role of library director Wednesday. Burry was previously the manager of support and circulation services, and has served in the Acting Chief Librarian role since the retirement of Janet Marren in July.
Burry has been with the Library since 2011. He moved to Prince George with his wife and three daughters in 2003, earning a bachelor of arts degree at the University of Northern B.C. while working as a library assistant in UNBC’s Geoffrey R. Weller Library. Burry completed his master of library and information science degree at the University of Washington in 2011, joining the Prince George Public Library shortly after.
“Paul’s experiences in various libraries, his skill set, and his interview with the hiring committee left us with no doubt that he is the best choice to take over leadership of Prince George Public Library. The Board was unanimous in selecting Paul,” said Gagel.
