The Blue Hill Public Library recently announced the hiring of Pat Horton of Sedgwick as youth services librarian. Nancy Guy, the previous youth services librarian, retired last month.
Horton has over seven years of experience working at the Witherle Library in Castine, serving as both public and school librarian (for the nearby Adams School).
She has said that she plans to continue the very popular chess club, storytime (now with sign language and puppets), Saturday stories and the summer reading program.
Horton started at the library June 8.
