The Metropolitan Library Commission voted to hire Tim Rogers as the library system’s new executive director.

Rogers was one of three finalists introduced last month during a public meeting and told the crowd he wanted to help the library system grow in a new era of digital content and develop a closer relationship with the community.

“Branch staff needs to be integrated into the community,” Rogers said. “The best way for the library staff to be a major part of the community is to get out into the community and be active in the community and not just seen as the librarian behind the desk.”

Rogers is currently a director for a library consortium in North Carolina that provides digital content and service for North Carolina libraries.

Rogers will have an annual salary of $150,000, a $650 car allowance and a relocation allowance of up to $10,000.
