Wilder Library to Welcome New Director
The Board of Trustees of the Wilder Memorial Library have announced the arrival of new Library director Amanda Merk, who will be taking over from the current director, Kerri MacLaury. MacLaury leaves on October 1 to move to the Boston area.
Merk has spent her entire career working in libraries, most recently at the Social Law Library in Boston, Mass., where her clientele consisted mostly of lawyers and supreme court justices. She is very excited about the prospect of running a small town library. The Board was most impressed with her qualifications and her leadership talent and the library background and knowledge she will bring to the position.
Under MacLaury’s leadership, the library saw dramatic increases in patron usage, volunteer support, program offerings and fundraising goals. Kerri was always looking for new and creative ways to serve our community and engage volunteers; Merk plans to continue with Kerri’s efforts.
Wilder Memorial Library is located at 24 Lawrence Hill Road in Weston. For further information, call 802-824-4307 or visit the website at
