Panel OKs State Librarian Despite Initial Concerns

“The son of a former California Supreme Court justice won approval Wednesday from a state Senate panel as the new state librarian after initial concerns that he had never worked in the field and had no formal training as a librarian when he was nominated. Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown named Greg Lucas of Sacramento to the $143,000-a-year post in March. State law requires the appointee to be a technically trained librarian, and Lucas said he began taking an online master’s degree library science class this month from San Jose State University.” (via AP)
