FLEMINGTON, NJ – The Freeholders announced last week that James Keehbler is the new director for the Hunterdon library system.

Keehbler, who lives in Hunterdon, replaces Mark Titus, who retired last year.

Keehbler is the former President of the New Jersey Library Association and a New Jersey Librarian of the Year. He has more than 12 years’ experience as a Library Director, having worked as Director for both the Piscataway and New Providence Library systems.

He holds a Master of Public Administration and Master of Library Science, both from Rutgers University.

Keehbler’s record includes increasing library schedules for public accessibility, seeking out funding opportunities and technological advances, including being part of a team that created the first makerspace in a public library in New Jersey, according to  press release issued by the county.

He has developed library websites, newsletters, and annual reports, as well as being a founding member of the planning team for NJ Makers Day, a statewide celebration of making and maker culture.

Hunterdon has three main county locations and 10 municipal locations.

“It is certainly a challenge to find the best ways to serve a community with multiple libraries spread out in different communities,” Keehbler said. “My vision for the library is to be continually evolving, creating community partnerships, evaluating existing services and developing new ones, to become an exemplary library that creates opportunities to inform, to inspire and support innovation for our residents.”
