Another library departure

One day after Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Director Charles Brown announced his resignation, a published report detailed the departure of a second library executive.

According to Library Journal on Thursday, the merger of some library services with Mecklenburg County departments eliminated the position of director of organization resources held by Brian Beavers.

A library spokesperson told the publication Beavers, who earns $84,978 in salary and $27,872 in benefits, would leave Feb. 5.

Beavers' departure helps offset the cost of retaining Brown through June and the immediate hire of an interim chief executive officer, library officials say.

Brown will work the next five months at 80 percent of his current $170,974 salary. Interim CEO Vick Phillips will receive $13,000 a month.

Brown also gets an $800 monthly auto allowance and a benefits package worth $56,097, the report says.
