The former director of a library in Ashburnham was arraigned Friday on forgery and embezzlement charges. 

Cheryl Paul-Bradley, 54 of Troy, New Hampshire, was charged with two counts of forgery, two counts of uttering and three counts of fraud or embezzlement by a municipal official for allegedly stealing more than $50,000 from the Stevens Memorial Library. 

Paul-Bradley pleaded not guilty to the charges and was released on personal recognizance. She was ordered to have no contact with victims or witnesses in the case. 

The case was continued to May 25 for a pre-trial conference. 

The thefts are alleged to have happened between March 2010 and July 2014. 

She resigned as library director on July 17, 2014.
