Clinton Library Director Leaving Post

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The first director of Bill Clinton's presidential library is retiring and moving back to his home state of Alabama.  A spokesman for the National Archives and Records Administration says David Alsobrook is retiring from the Clinton library to head the Museum of Mobile.

Alsobrook is retiring at the end of the month.

Alsobrook spent the past seven years overseeing the 42nd president's archives.  He was named director of Clinton's $165 million library in May 2004, months before the structure opened along the Arkansas River in downtown Little Rock. 

The process to find Alsobrook's replacement hasn't begun.  The replacement will be selected in consultation with former President Clinton.
