Meet the Finalists: Des Moines Public Library Director Candidate Forum


The public is invited to hear the Library Director finalists discuss the future of the public library during this open event.

The Des Moines Public Library will host a public candidate forum as part of the process of selecting a new Director. The forum will take place on Wednesday, June 13, from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Central Library’s meeting room wing. This will be the public’s opportunity to interact with the finalists during the interview process.

To start the program, each candidate will give a 10-minute presentation on the topic:

“Which two library trends will most impact the public library of the future?”

Following the individual presentations, the finalists will sit as a panel to answer audience questions.

The public forum is part of a two-day interview process being organized by Bradbury Miller Associates, an executive search firm based in Kansas City. The names of the finalists and more information will be announced next week.
