New Library Director --Livermore Public Library Assistant Director Tamera LeBeau was appointed Library Director on July 29th.  She was selected from an incredibly competitive recruitment with forty-three applicants from various places around the country -- and one international candidate.  Before coming to Livermore seven years ago, Tamera worked at the Nampa Public Library in Idaho and the Sacramento Public Library.  Ms. LeBeau will make a tremendous contribution to the City's Leadership Team and the community as she continues to deliver exemplary library services.  Congratulations, Tamera!
