Correction: In the March 24 Hits & Misses column titled “Shhhhh!” it was incorrectly implied that a number of Salt Lake City public library employees had been let go. Julianne Hancock, library marketing director, stressed that no employee has been forced to resign. “As part of our reorganization efforts, a number of employees were matched with new positions within the library system. No employees were dismissed due to the reorganization. We are proud to have a diverse, talented team serving our community,” Hancock said.
