New Director Week 1

OK, so a LOT has happened during my first week as director of the Highwood Public Library.  I am so incredibly fortunate to work with a wonderful, dedicated, and truly patron-centered staff.  The Board has been superb ensuring a smooth transition.  I also know that I have the BEST volunteer team any library has every seen.  I’ve had a few bumps along the road this week (mostly in getting the library their money and locating records), but it has been a great first week.

And to just make my day today, I received the warmest welcome from a bunch of other directors in the system formerly known as NSLS (AKA RAILS North?).

I just cannot explain how truly lucky I am.  I work in the noblest profession in the world.  My colleagues always seem to bring a smile to my face.  I get to lead a library into an exciting new era, and I get to do it with great people by my side every step of the way.  What more could any ask of his or her profession?
