Erie Co. Library Director to become COO of Queens Library
By Bert Gambini
Buffalo, NY – The director of the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library will leave her position in March to become the Chief Operating Officer of the Queens Library. Bridget Quinn-Carey has led the 37-branch library system since 2008. During that time, Quinn-Carey oversaw advances in the areas of technology and services, while also taking part in the process of examining new funding options for the library. WBFO'S Bert Gambini says her departure may have surprised some in the community, but for Quinn-Carey, the decision to accept the new role was a matter of timing and opportunity.
