Dear Patrons,
I am writing with some unhappy news
to share with you. For the last 10-11 months I have been dealing with a health issue. I have been diagnosed with a thyroid disorder and arrived at the difficult decision several weeks ago that
I need a break from the work world to lower my stress levels and recover my health.
I informed the Library Commissioners several weeks ago, and worked with them to plan the next steps.
My last day at the Library will be June 2.
I would like to thank the Commissioners, our Town Manager Bill Shepeluk, and the library staff for their compassion and support upon receiving this news. 
The Commissioners are poised to launch a search for a new director. There will be a transition time for a few months, but the staff is a strong team and will continue to provide the best services they can. I ask for your patience and understanding during the transition.
I’ve grown so fond of Waterbury and its wonderful people, and I am proud of the work we have done on your behalf since I began here in August of 2018. We have expanded the role of the Library in the community, partnered with many of Waterbury’s awesome organizations, added staff capacity, increased both the digital and physical resources that we offer, created fabulous programs, and many other accomplishments; not the least of which was pivoting (word of the year!)
our services during Covid.
I want to express my deep gratitude and admiration to the staff, our volunteers, 
the Library Commissioners, and the Friends of the Waterbury Public Library for their dedication to and support of this most marvelous and democratic of institutions.
And to our wonderful patrons, may you all ride out the rest of the pandemic without difficulty! It’s been a true pleasure to serve you.
All the best,
Almy Landauer, Library Director
