For the last 12-and-a-half years, Gerry Laurito has sat behind the director’s desk at the Camp Verde Community Library.

Camp Verde Public Library DIRECTOR Gerry Laurito is leaving his office but not the building. Laurito is giving up the top spot to spend more time working with library patrons beginning Wednesday, June 27, when Kathy Hellman begins as the new director.Laurito will be sitting there until late June, when Kathy Hellman, the new library director, takes over.

Laurito’s not leaving the library, however. He’ll still be there, working mostly up front with the public.

“I just figured it was time for a change,” Laurito said. “I didn’t want to get burned out, and I felt like it was time to recharge my batteries.”

It was years ago in the 1970s that Laurito, a Pennsylvania native, got a job as a clerk working part-time in an Erie library.
