Library Board of Trustees names new executive director
Today, Marcellus Turner takes over as executive director of Jefferson County Public Library. Turner fills a vacancy created by the planned retirement of Bill Knott after 37 years at the Library’s helm.

Turner has been a part of senior management since joining Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) in 2002. For the last three years, he has fulfilled dual roles as deputy county librarian and director of public services. In these roles, Turner was responsible for the day-to-day operations of JCPL’s 10 locations, its Bookmobile and the cataloging, acquisitions and collection development departments.

According to Library Board Chair Keith Grebe, the Trustees believe that Turner is the right person to carry out a shared vision that will guide the Library’s future, ensuring that it remains a vital resource to the community. Turner brings a wealth of knowledge about JCPL and significant experience in library operations to the position.
