LeClerc to Step Down from NYPL

New York Public Library president Paul LeClerc said on Wednesday that he will step down in the sumer of 2011, the NYTimes reports. LeClerc has been with NYPL since December 1993 (his is the longest tenure of any NYPL president).

NYPL board chair Catherine Marron and vice chair Joshua Steiner will head a search committee to find LeClerc's replacement, and "said that the new leader could come from any number of fields — academics, technology, the nonprofit sector."
