North Adams Library Director Mindy Hackner plans to retire in a year and urged the board of trustees to start looking for her replacement sooner rather than later.

IBerkshires.com reports that Hackner told the trustees yesterday that Assistant Library Director Kim DiLego is not interested.

Hackner had hoped she would step into the director position. Hackner says that she will be retiring in June of next year.

Hackner was hired in 2014. She has already begun preparing her job description and a list of her duties.
