Announcement of the Departure of Dr. Mitch Freedman

Dr. Maurice J. (Mitch) Freedman announced his resignation as Director of the New City Library effective March 19, 2015.  He has served in this capacity for nearly two years.

During his tenure at New City, Dr. Freedman provided leadership, energy, and expertise needed by the New City Library and helped restore a positive image which was waning prior to his joining the Library.  Under his direction, the Library restructured the audiovisual department, refreshed the Children’s Room and upgraded the technology of the main meeting space. The deterioration of the physical plant was addressed with seven of the eight roofs redone and numerous other needed repairs completed or begun. 

Dr. Freedman also contracted with Library consultants who are working with the Library staff to develop a new five-year plan which will guide the Library into the future. His passion for perfection led him to ensure the Library’s future not only in function, but in encouraging the staff both in spirit and in action. Dr. Freedman was rightly proud that so many patrons come to the library each Thursday specifically for the Director’s Film Series which he initiated.
