In January 2008 Nancy W. Perlow was appointed Library Director by the Library Trustees, following the retirement of Kathy Glick-Weil.

Due to significant budget cuts for FY09 and after much careful deliberation, the library branches at Waban, Auburndale, Nonantum, and Newton Corner were closed on June 30, 2008.
