The Library Director Search Committee and the Library Board of Trustees are pleased to
announce the Board’s unanimous decision to select Mr. William Martino as the new Director of
the Clark County Public Library, effective May 14th, 2018.
Most recently, Mr. Martino served as the Director of the Holmes County District Public Library
