The search for a new State Librarian is on, with the idea that the interview process may begin in September. Then the Search Committee makes a recommendation to the governor and if the offer is accepted, a background check is conducted. Then the candidate goes before the Senate Committee in January of 2010 and if approved, the candidate is voted on and confirmed by the full Senate. Realistically, it will be February 2010 before a new State Librarian is instated. In the meantime, Marc Galbraith is serving as interim State Librarian.
