The Huntley Area Public Library Board announced Wednesday it had picked Arlington Heights librarian Patrick McDonald to be its new Library Director.
Current Director, Virginia Maravilla, will retired next month after 11 years at the Library's helm.
McDonald is the Director of Library Experiences at Arlington Heights and previously was circulation manager and information services manager there.
Huntley Library spokeswoman Leigh Ann Porsch said McDonald had experience with construction and remodeling projects and technology upgrades. That could come in handy since McDonald will take over in the midst of the library's adding a temporary addition to relieve overcrowding.
