Jeffrey Courouleau will get a chance to actually see what he is taking on when the future library director visits Rolla next week.

According to Library Board Director Larry Bowen, Courouleau indicated he wanted to visit Rolla and was hoping to attend the Technology Committee meeting.

Courouleau, 33, accepted the position late last month after completing health insurance negotiations. He currently is serving as the head of the Perry, Okla., Library.

When informed of the visit, Gary Patterson who sits on the committee, seemed pleased about the possibility to speak with the new director in a formal manner before taking over his duties July 1.

Courouleau will also have a chance to officially complete the hiring process, since he has not been present to sign the contract agreement on city’s health insurance.
