Greetings fellow Walpoleans! I am very excited to take on the position of Library Director for the Walpole Town Library. As a means of introduction, I thought I would take this opportunity share a bit more of my background with you.
I graduated from Simmons College in 2002 with a Master of Library and Information Science. I started my career as a children’s librarian, working my way up to Supervisor of Children’s Services at the Newton Free Library where I was employed for nine years. I then moved with my husband to Illinois and served as Children’s Services Manager at the Woodridge Public Library from 2016 until spring of 2020, when we relocated to Walpole. Prior to becoming a librarian, I worked for many years in the non-profit sector for the National Geographic Society and the Manchester Historic Association.
I am thrilled to be back on the east coast close to family. We have enjoyed a very warm welcome here and the opportunity to spend the summer settling into our new home. I encourage everyone to stop by the library and say hello. I look forward to meeting you and discussing ways the library can continue to support the needs of this wonderful community.
