The Bethany Library Association announces, with great sadness, the departure of Melissa Canham-Clyne as Director of Clark Memorial Library effective January 1, 2020. For the past seven years, Melissa has played a critical role in the development, growth and success of the Clark Memorial Library.  We will miss her and her inspiring leadership and tremendous dedication.  We wish her luck in her new endeavor as Executive Director of the Hamden Public Library.  We wish to thank her for her dedicated service to the Library and to the Bethany Community.

Over the next few months, we will conduct a search to find a new director.  During this transition period, it is our priority to find the best individual to lead and provide a stable and effective library for our Community.  Please feel free to contact Kathryn Sylvester, President of the Bethany library Association ( or Betsy Thornquist, Search Committee Chair, ( with any questions or comments.
