COLUMBUS—Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) has hired Joe Yersavich as manager of its Dublin Branch. He begins his new role within the organization today, March 12.
Yersavich has served in many roles at CML since he joined the organization in 1990. For the past seven years, he has served as manager of the New Albany Branch. Prior to that, he served as manager of the Hilltop Branch.
“Joe arrives in Dublin at a critical time,” said CML Chief Customer Experience Officer Alison Circle. “He’s a proven community leader with a long track record who will help welcome our Dublin customers to their new branch when it opens next year.”
The previous manager of the Dublin Branch, Candy Princehorn, has requested a new role within the organization, and will serve as a librarian at CML’s South High Branch.
