The Sayre Public Library board of trustees has chosen Kim Miller to be the library's new director, officials said.

Kim Miller, who previously served as the children's librarian at the Wyalusing Public Library, started in the position last Thursday. She fills the post previously held by Susan DePumpo Robinson, who stepped down in July after five years.

The transition has been smooth and enjoyable so far, with county directors, library staff and board members popping in to help, Miller said. "This library has wonderful opportunities," she said. "I've had a lot of great help."

The library board is "pleased" with their selection, board member and borough council president Henry Farley said at a recent council meeting. "She reminds me of [Robinson], just a younger version," he said.

Miller said she hopes to meet old and new patrons alike and introduce them to the library's many resources. "I'd love to bring a welcoming face to the library and make everyone feel at home here," she said.

Miller plans to pursue her Master's degree in library science during the spring semester following her October wedding, she said. She hopes to attend Clarion University.
