We write in support of Jim Madigan as library head. Jim has everything going for him?#34;he has long and varied experience as number two at the library and has proved able at every role he occupied.
He has excellent rapport with the staff?#34;an important consideration for a seamless transition and smooth sailing thereafter.
He knows the libraries well, having been there during the construction of the main library and the rehabilitation of the branches?#34;another important attribute.
In short, he has the experience and all the qualities needed for a successful head, including long on-site experience.
Let’s not reinvent the wheel.
Herbert M. Rubinstein, M.D.
Ex-president, Oak Park Public Library Board
