Library head departs for Danville job

Halifax County Library Director Joe Zappacosta announced Tuesday afternoon that he will be leaving the position on Sept. 30.

“After two years and five months here, I will be moving to serve as the director of the Danville Public Library,” Zappacosta told library board members at their monthly meeting.

“He’s done a wonderful job,” said Library Board Chairman Bee Edmunds Espy, “and we will certainly miss him.”

Zappacosta said he plans to continue living with his family in South Boston and commute to his new job.

Zappacosta urged board members to continue working with the local bar association to move the county’s law library, now housed in the Courthouse, to the Halifax Library. He said the move would benefit both the library and the county and suggested that a member of the local bar association might be asked to serve on the Library Board to ensure communication between the two groups.

Zappacosta also advised that he has received five or six applications for the job opening of South Boston Library Branch manager. All the applicants, he said, seem to be good candidates and have their Masters degrees in library science.

With the deadline for applying for the job set for Sept. 20, board members agreed to meet in a specially called session on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 4:30 p.m. at the South Boston Library to consider the applications.

Zappacosta also reviewed the work which has been done on the library’s Strategic Plan which focuses in large part on community involvement and advocacy for the library, reflecting what if offers for its patrons.
