ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — The Arkansas City Public Library is looking for a new director.

The library's Board of Trustees on Monday night approved the firing of Cece Rettiger, who had been on the job since last November.

The Arkansas City Traveler reports (http://bit.ly/1l3tgPa ) the board made the decision after a closed meeting. Board members said they couldn't publicly discuss a personnel matter.

Rettiger said Monday night that she was shocked and "devastated" by the board's decision.
