Grahame Barnett Chief Librarian Resigns Position

The Cobourg Public Library Board received a letter of resignation from Chief Librarian Grahame Barnett, Wednesday afternoon to be effective September 30. Mr. Barnett will take his month’s vacation in October, thus, he feels, making a simpler situation of engaging a replacement.


Mr. Barnett stressed that his leaving was purely for personal and private reasons; he had originally planned to leave in 1964, but with the new building and the problems it entailed felt he should remain until the library was settled in its new home. He also felt that the library should have a change of chief librarian every five to ten years as a new approach and new ideas were beneficial. His resignation was accepted with extreme regret by the board.


The library has been busier than ever with the increase mostly in fiction and reference books. Among the many inquiries to the library were information for the history department of the Bank of Montreal, foreign investments, effects of detergents on water, the Sargasso sea, personnel, and personal management.


The members of the board retired to the upper floor to view the current transformation of the hall into an art gallery. They expressed approval with progress being made and plans for further alterations.


Present were: Chief Librarian Grahame Barnett, Chairman C. G. King, Mrs. G. S. Edwards, Mrs. R. E. Gardiner, Mrs. A. H. Field, Mrs. L. A. Verney, Mrs. F. L. Lawson, Wm. McCaig, G. Sine, C. Leonard was absent.
