Sterling library director, DPW superintendent settling into roles

STERLING – Department of Public Works Superintendent Ryan Mouradian and Conant Public Library Director Betsy Perry have quickly and quietly settled into the roles they took on last fall.

Perry brings two decades of library experience with her. After earning her bachelor’s and master’s degrees, she served as the director of the Sutton Public Library, her hometown, for nine years. Prior to that she worked in several different libraries in Central Massachusetts, in positions such as electronic resources librarian and children’s librarian “and everything in between.”

She took over as director at Conant on Oct. 1 in the wake of longtime director Patricia Campbell’s retirement. Perry said she was inspired to apply for the position after visiting the library, when she “got to see how beautiful the building was and how exceptional the staff are.”

“It’s going great so far. The welcome has been amazing, ”she said.“ I got to serve at the December pancake breakfast at the senior center and introduce myself to many residents I hadn’t met yet. Everyone has been so welcoming. ”
