Alaska Department of Education Commissioner Larry Ledoux announced Thursday he has appointed Linda Thibodeau to be state librarian and director of the Division of Libraries, Archives and Museums. She replaces Kay Shelton, who retired.
The division operates the Alaska State Library and Historical Collections , the Alaska State Archives, the Alaska State Museum in Juneau and the Sheldon Jackson Museum in Sitka.
It appears the State Librarian is not appointed (or unappointed) by the Governor.
