The new head of Ottawa’s library is not a librarian


The new head of Ottawa’s library is not a librarian:
Danielle McDonald took over the Ottawa Public Library and its $50-million budget this week. She’s a departure from her predecessor, Barbara Clubb, who started out shelving books and capped her career with a national award for her service to librarianship. McDonald is a lifelong administrator specializing in behind-the-scenes work in the city bureaucracy. Before she was named at the beginning of March, she had almost no public profile.
