Lexington library reopens search for director

The Lexington Public Library has reopened its search for a new executive director and will accept applications through June 30, spokesman Doug Tattershall said Wednesday. The choice could be made by mid-August, Tattershall said.

The library's first search, earlier this year, failed when its favored finalist declined the job offer, and the library opted not to hire any of the other 32 applicants.

The library fired its previous director, Kathleen Imhoff, in July under a clause in her contract that said she could be fired without cause. She had held the job for six years.
