NORTH WEBSTER — After less than five months on the job, Tyson Wheeler has resigned as executive director of the North Webster Community Public Library. Wheeler began his tenure on Jan. 3, replacing Heather Barron who also had resigned.
Wheeler came to North Webster from Tipton County Public Library, where he served as public services manager. A native of Elwood, Wheeler holds a master of library science degree from Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis and a bachelor of general studies degree from Indiana University Kokomo.
According to Cindy Hilgenberg, vice president of the North Webster Community Public Library Board of Trustees, the board has begun its search for a new executive director.
“A few other staff members have resigned in recent weeks,” Hilgenberg confirmed. “All of the positions have been filled with highly skilled individuals who are dedicated to the library. Patrons visiting the library will find many new and exciting programs as well as many old favorites which remain available.
“Summer is a special time at the library with our summer children’s program ‘Oceans of Possibilities.’ Come to the library and be welcomed by our new team as well as many familiar staff members.”
