Just FYI, I don't work at this library. I am almost certain these job postings both refer to the same "Head Librarian" position they advertised a month or so ago.

And going to work at this library right now would be like walking into a wasps nest. I sincerly wish talented folks would move up to enid and work @ that ol' library but now may not the be time.

Thanks for the heads up on the job posting -- I wasn't sure on it.

Interview in Enid would be a little difficult at this time considering the library is closed because of the roof (and water?) damage.

Although I'm sure you are talking about other stuff. ;-)
