Ben Carter will move up from interim director to director of the Conyers-Rockdale Library System. The Library’s board made the appointment official on March 25.
“I am very excited to serve as director for the library and look forward to continuing to serve our community,” said Carter.
A native of Walton County, Carter has degrees from the University of Georgia and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Carter had served as interim director since June 2013. He originally came to the Library as head of the Youth Services department in 2006.
He worked for the Gwinnett Public Library System for five years before returning to Conyers as assistant director for Public Services in September 2012.
In his job as assistant director, Carter coordinated and supervised the four public service departments of the library.
As director, Carter will work with the Board of Trustees on strategic development and community partnerships while ensuring that the Nancy Guinn Memorial Library continues to serve as a hub of learning, leisure, and support for our community.
