Two new managers are checking into the Bloomfield Library.
This week, the Library Board approved the appointments of Adele Puccio as library Director and Holly Belli as head Children’s librarian.
Adele Puccio recently served as head of the Caldwell Public Library, but is a familiar face to Bloomfield Library staff and patrons, as she served for nearly five years as the supervising librarian at the Bloomfield Public Library. She left Bloomfield to become director of Rose Memorial Library in Stony Point, N.Y before moving on to Caldwell.
Puccio earned a bachelor's and a master's in Library Science from Rutger's University, and has worked in libraries for more than 16 years.
Holly Belli received her M.L.S. from S.C.S.U. and has been a Children's Librarian for ten years, most recently at the Ridgewood Public Library, according to an online profile. She has also chaired the Garden State Children's Book Award Committee, reviewed literature for School Library Journal.
Puccio replaces Catherine Wolverton, who left the director post in June. In an article on her resignation, Bloomfield Life noted that in 2011 budget constraints reduced the library's hours of operation and had the library close altogether on Sundays.
