Catalog Search

Welcome to our NEW Assistant Director!

Big news today from Leslie Morrissey, our Library Director:

“Following the retirement of our Assistant Director, Lynne Carreiro, the library conducted a search for
a new Assistant Director of the Falmouth Public Library. We were fortunate to have many qualified
applicants, interviewing eight candidates from a pool of 42 applicants.

On Tuesday, August 7th, Linda Collins, a resident of East Falmouth will take her place in the Assistant
Director’s office in the Main Library. Linda comes to us from Harvard University where she was
responsible for Access Services and Collection Management among other duties. Linda holds
a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from Lesley College and a Masters of Library and
Information Science from the University of Rhode Island in Kingston. Linda also served on the Board of
Library Trustees at the Foxboro Library, including a term as the Chairman.

As a resident of Falmouth, she got to know the library as a patron. She commented that she was very
impressed by the beautiful facility and the service oriented staff and would love to be a part of the
library team. We are very excited to have her join the library as the new Assistant Director. Please, if
you get a chance, stop by and welcome her to the Falmouth Public Library.”

I think Linda is going to fit right in-on her first day she stepped up and helped serve sundaes at the ice cream party we threw to celebrate the culmination of yet another wildly successful summer reading season in the children’s department. Yay for Summer Reading and Yay for our new Asst. Director!
