Hartford Library's New COO A Non-Librarian

Matthew K. Poland brings extensive business experience, including time as a senior vice president and chief operating officer at Work/Life Innovations and as senior vice president of human resources at Veritude, a Fidelity investments company, and more than 10 years as a vice president at The Courant.
