The Stockbridge Library Association elected two new trustees to its board of directors at its May 17 Annual Meeting. Buck Smith of Stockbridge and Nancy Hahn of Great Barrington will begin their terms July 1.
Smith, an architect who was co-owner of Bradley Architects Inc. of Pittsfield until his retirement in 2008, returns to the board after a one-year absence. During his previous term he served as the Building Committee chair and helped shepherd the building plans for the library’s renovation.
Smith will serve for one year as the board liaison with the architect and construction team involved in the renovation and restoration of the library.
Hahn was formerly the Sheffield Library director (2001-2012), where she concentrated on programming, collection development and maintenance. She was an advocate for rural libraries in Western Massachusetts and rallied support to increase state aid.
Prior to that, Hahn was a librarian and historian with the Department of Defense Information School in Fort Meade, Md., and senior reference librarian, Command Reference Center in Heidelberg, Germany.
