Town officials say the search for a new director of the town’s Bancroft Memorial Library was unsuccessful. 
“We weren’t able to reach an agreement with our top candidate,” Town Administrator Diana Schindler told the Board of Selectmen at its August 9 meeting. 
Former Director Robyn York left earlier this year after about 14 months in the position at the town’s public library. 
Town officials will consider an interim director while conducting another search. They are also working with the Finance Committee to see if they can increase the salary range so the town can be competitive when making an employment offer, said Schindler.
