Bellingham library director retires with vision of new central library unfulfilled

Pam Kiesner has retired after 12 years directing the public library in Bellingham, Wash. Her experience overseeing the construction of library branches in Green Bay, Wis., contributed to her hiring in Bellingham, but visions of a new central library in Whatcom County fell victim to the recession and tighter government spending. The library board is seeking an interim director while a new study explores funding options for the Bellingham library and its branches.
