ROCKINGHAM, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont library director is back on the job after she fought her dismissal last year and received an out-of-court settlement for $35,000.

The Eagle Times reports (https://bit.ly/1nnJ1CR) Celina Houlné was rehired Tuesday by the Rockingham Free Public Library Board of Trustees.

Houlné was library director for about five years before her termination last September. She settled with the trustees last week during a mediation session.

Her pending contract will run until June 30, 2016.

Those who supported her dismissal said she hadn’t shown that she had achieved set goals for two years, and that she didn’t communicate well with the board or follow budget policy or protocol.

Houlné denied the allegations, saying she worked in the best interests of the library.
