Sawyer Free Library director announces retirement

Continue reading below

Sawyer Free Library director Carol Gray recently announced her retirement after 16 years at the library. The resident of the Lanesville section of Gloucester joined the library staff in 1998 as assistant director and on three occasions served as acting director before gaining the top position in 2007. In a press release, David McAveeney, chairman of the library’s board of directors in 2006-2007, said Gray brought stability to an institution that had nearly lost state certification because of financial uncertainty. “She was the one who kept the place afloat,” he said in the release, which also said that Gray played a role in creating a new strategic plan, keeping technology current with Internet resources and e-books, and broadening the library’s English as a second language program to reach more residents. Gray intends to stop working in March, though with accrued vacation time her official retirement date will be in April.
