Blackwell named Marshall library director


The Marshall County Public Library Board of Trustees has named Tammy Blackwell as the next library director.

Blackwell succeeds Kristi Tucker, who is scheduled to retire in the spring.

According to Tucker, the library received several strong applicants for the position.

"Ultimately, the board agreed that Tammy was the right person for the job," she said. "She cares deeply about the library and our community, and I feel confident she will work hard to continue to grow the library's collection and services."

Blackwell began working for the Marshall County Public Library in 2006. In 2008, she was made the first young adult librarian, and in 2015, she was promoted to Calvert City branch manager. She will begin transitioning into the director role in February to assist with moving of the Benton branch to its new location on 12th Street.
