As of March 29, Keith McCoy is the Interim Executive Director of LibraryLinkNJ. He will serve on a part-time basis until a new Executive Director is in place. Plans are for that person to be here by late June or early July.
Keith has broad experience with New Jersey libraries. A graduate of Harvard and Drexel Universities, he came to this state in 1978. After positions at the public libraries in East Brunswick and Plainfield, he became director of the Sadie Pope Dowdell Library in South Amboy. He was later director in Rahway and Roselle, and ended his career (he thought) after seven plus years as the assistant director of the Somerset County Library System. After retiring in 2018, he became the interim administrator of the Edison Public Library in March 2020, just in time to cope with the Covid-19 pandemic.
He served several terms on the LINX/INFOLINK board, including almost 4 years as its president. He was also treasurer and second vice-president of NJLA, and served on various committees. He has written numerous articles for library publications, not to mention being a book reviewer for Library Journal for over thirty years.
