E-mail Print PDF

Judith Tolchin and Renee SwartzWith the retirement of long-time Monmouth County Library Director Kenneth Sheinbaum on December 31, the Monmouth County Library Commission has announced the appointment of Judith Tolchin as Interim Director.

Tolchin, who has 22 years of service at the Monmouth County Library, previously held the position of Branch Manager/Chief Librarian at Library Headquarters in Manalapan, where she was responsible for the operation of Headquarters, which is the largest public library building in the state.

The Library also has had a change of leadership at the Eastern Branch Library in Shrewsbury, with the retirement in December of Janet Kranis, who had been Chief Librarian at Eastern Branch since 1986.

Principal Librarian Kim Avagliano, who worked in administration at Library Headquarters in Manalapan, is the new Chief Librarian at Eastern Branch. Avagliano has been with the Library System since 1991.

"The Library Commission is delighted to welcome Ms. Tolchin and Ms. Avagliano to their new positions of leadership," said Library Commission Chair Renee B. Swartz. "Under their direction, the Commission is confident the Monmouth County Library System will continue to move forward with its superlative library services and programs to best serve the residents of Monmouth County."
