And the Winner is: Sharon Sharry (updated)

I was not able to attend the Jones Library Trustees' meeting devoted to the choice of a new Director this evening, but over at Only In the Republic of Amherst, Larry Kelley has conveniently provided the result (ahead of the professional print and electronic media, as is often the case).

As predicted: Sharon Sharry, though on the second ballot. In the first ballot, he reports, each candidate got 3 votes.
Neither result is surprising, and each squares with my gut feeling about both divided opinions and the ultimate outcome.

Update, August 10

The Gazette has now reported more fully on last night's meeting. An update follows in the next post.
