Glidden submits resignation as library director

August 16, 2022

Kimber Glidden
Unanimously approved by the Boundary County Library Board as director in late October, stepping in to relieve interim director Sandy Ashworth, who came out of retirement at a time of crisis, Kimber Glidden this evening announced her resignation in the face of ever increasing pressure on the community treasure, named the best small library in America just four years ago.

"I want to thank the Boundary County Library Board of Trustees for providing me the opportunity to serve as Director of the Boundary County Library," Glidden posted to the library website and Facebook page. "My experience and skill set made me a good fit to help the district move toward a more current and relevant business model and to implement updated policy and best practices. However, nothing in my background could have prepared me for the political atmosphere of extremism, militant Christian fundamentalism, intimidation tactics and threatening behavior currently being employed in the community. Therefore it is with deepest regret that I tendering my resignation effective September 10."
