New librarian hired


An Electric City woman has been selected as the new head librarian at Grand Coulee.

North Central Regional Library officials announced this week that Lisa Moore has been selected after a lengthy process of interviews.

NCRL spokesperson Angela Morris said Monday that there was a large number of applicants and that it was a difficult decision because of the quality of the candidates.

Moore replaces Joette Barry, who has moved to the number-two position at the Moses Lake library with a step up in grade.

Morris said that Moore begins her new position officially on Sept. 30. In the meantime, she will have some time in training.

Grand Coulee is one of 28 public libraries under the NCRL umbrella.

Moore is married to Sgt. Gary Moore of the Grand Coulee Police Department, with whom she recently celebrated their 34th anniversary. They have a son, Jeremy, who lives in Lacey, and a daughter, Amanda, living in New York City.

Moore was librarian in Reardan for 12 years, managing an independent library system, largely dependent on grants for its existence. She grew up in both the Portland and Medford, Oregon areas.

Moore said Tuesday that she enjoys working with children and looks forward to the challenges in this area.
