New library head outlines plans

Debbie Clifton, formerly assistant director and youth services librarian at the Holbrook Public Library, was named director in July by the board of trustees. In the fall, she plans to offer one-on-one computer help for Microsoft Office, resume writing, finding jobs, using the new library catalogue, and other topics at patrons’ requests, she said in an interview. Sign-up sheets will be available in September, she said. Although the showing of movies is temporarily on hold due to construction to install an elevator, other programs will continue, including children’s programs, day and evening adult book clubs, the handcrafters’ group, and the Great Decisions discussion group, she said.
