Mesa library director on probation

Library Directors seem to be getting some bad press lately.

This Time it’s Patsy J. Hansel, Directory in Mesa, Arizona, who after being investigated for sexual harassment, will remain on probation for one year and take special classes – even though investigators recommended she be terminated.

They say she inappropriately toward one of her employees by commenting on her legs, touching her hair and buttocks, and telling her that she loved her during an employee luncheon at a Mesa restaurant.

Hansel says the allegations were the result of her asking supervisors to start tracking the employee’s performance more closely.
