The Winding Rivers Library System Board on Wednesday gave Tomah, WI librarian Irma Keller a second chance to get her state-required credentials. When hired in April, Keller was required by state law to obtain her master’s degree in library science. She has not done that, although she is to start classes in January.
Her lack of certification means WRLS resource grants totaling $8,300 annually could be withheld from the Tomah Public Library. Keller said she offered to step down as library director but the Tomah library board encouraged her to stay.
