Partnership with The John G. McCullough Free Library:
The following information is from The John G. McCullough Free Library 2023 Report to the Village of North Bennington, December 7, 2023:
The library piloted a unique partnership with the Village School of North Bennington in January. The library’s Assistant Director, Cassidy Kokasko, is now also employed at the Village School as the school librarian. The Village School pays for Cassidy’s work at the school, and the two organizations split the cost of benefits. This contract with the Village School has enabled both organizations to efficiently employ and retain a talented librarian on a full-time basis.
