Cindy Moore has been named the new director of Converse County Library. She has been the Assistant Director since June of 2017. Outgoing Director Kirk Hissam is retiring, effective February 15, with Cindy moving into her new position the following day. “He left big shoes to fill,” she said.
Prior to coming to Converse County, Cindy worked in a junior high library in 1999. In 2003 she began in circulation at the White Mountain Library, moved into a reference position in the Green River Library and then to the Rock Springs Library where she was Head of Circulation and Reference for the Sweetwater County Library System. Beginning early in 2012, she was the Powell Branch Manager for Park County Library, and held her first directorship at Albany County Public Library from 2013-2016.
In October 2016, Converse County Library celebrated the opening of its incredible new main library in Douglas. “With this momentum we’ll be working on a remodel of the Glenrock Library building, bringing in more functionality and increasing the size with new construction in the basement. We’ll also continue the work of director Kirk Hissam and the board who started re-imagining our mission and service model.”
She added, “We have everything we need to work with: a positive staff, a supportive board and an awesome building.” She sees the library moving forward with “stellar services, innovative programming, terrific collections, ethical library practices, and sound fiscal management.”
Cindy shares her home life with one “cantankerous” husband and three dogs — one modest-sized Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and two enormous Leonbergers. Her daughter Kelly attends Cornell University, and her son Logan works for Soderberg Masonry.
