A public reception is planned Saturday, April 2, at the Weston Public Library to welcome its new director, Karen Tatarka.

The reception is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the library's community room, hosted by the library board and Friends of the Library.

Tatarka replaces Jane Atkinson, who retired March 4 after 36 years with the library.

Tatarka looks forward to meeting people in the community and hearing their ideas about the library, said Library Board Chairwoman Amy Sanborn.

Refreshments will be served at the reception.
