The Grey Highlands Public Library Board is searching for a new CEO to lead the Library for years to come, after the current CEO, Jennifer Murley, announced she would be leaving to take on the role of CEO at the Blue Mountains Public Library.

“It is with regret that we announce the resignation of our current CEO, Jennifer Murley, who has led the Library system for the past two years, but we will be working together to ensure a smooth transition and continuity of the Library’s programs and services,” says Library Board Chair Stewart Halliday.

The vacancy was posted on Friday, September 22 with the deadline for cover letters and resumes to be submitted to by Friday, October 13 at 5 pm.

The Board has appointed an ad hoc hiring committee for recruitment, consisting of Stewart Halliday (Library Board Chair), Janet Carson (Chair – Personnel and Policy Committee), and Steve Maloney (Board Member). The first round of interviews is scheduled to take place the week of October 16, 2023.

Jennifer will be focusing the next few months on completing ongoing projects, including the Library’s new Strategic Plan, the partial renovation of the Walter Harris Memorial Library in Markdale, and assisting with the Friends of the Flesherton Library’s Annual Harvest Café with author and President of the Law Commission of Canada, Shauna Van Praagh, taking place on Thursday, November 2 at 7 pm at the Flesherton Kinplex.


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
