A NEW FACE ... Every month these days seems to bring with it a new department head at Palo Alto City Hall. On Monday, the council unanimously approved the contract for the city's new Library Director Monique le Conge, who most recently served as director of library and cultural services in Richmond. The city hired le Conge after a national search that included an executive search firm, two interview panels and a six-candidate pool that was gradually winnowed down. Le Conge, who is replacing retired Director Diane Jennings will receive a $165,000 salary and will begin her duties on May 31. She introduced herself to the council Monday night and said she looks forward to working in Palo Alto as "such an exciting time for the libraries. ... Thank you, and I'll see you at the end of the month."
