From State Librarian Mary Wegner:
"I have decided to retire from my state librarian position in December. It is an honor to serve as your state librarian, and working with all of you has been a privilege and a great joy for me. It is now time for me to begin my next chapter.
"The state library’s governing board, the Commission of Libraries, is responsible for hiring the next state librarian. Dan Boice, chairman of the Commission, has asked me to let you know that the Commission hopes to have a new state librarian on board early in 2014.
"As always, thanks for all you do for Iowans and their libraries!"
