Corinne Chronopoulos of Wilton, currently the Pelham Public Library director, will take on the position of Peterborough Town Library director in mid-June, said Marcia Patten, chairwoman of the Peterborough Library Board of Trustees.
Along with residents, state librarian Michael York also attended the event.
Chronopoulos was chosen out of 49 applicants, Patten said.
"She built the website for the Pelham library and we're hoping that she'll do that for us. In fact, she can't wait," Patten said.
"Programing is our number one focus," she said. "You have to come out strong with programming to get people in the building. How many people still walk in here and say, 'You have DVDs?' "
"It's such a vibrant, alive place. It's perfect for my family. I think it's a real good cultural fit for us," she said. "I've been waiting for a job at this library. It's just a really good fit for us."
Chronopoulos is currently the vice president of the reference and adult services section of the New Hampshire Library Association.
She has a master's degree in library science from Simmons Graduate School of Information and Library Science and a degree of anthropology from the University of New Hampshire.
