In case you missed the buzz on Twitter and elsewhere, I have a new job! Starting officially on May 1st, I will be the Director for the San Rafael Public Library!
I’ve worked as the Assistant Director since February 2011, and as the Acting Director since November. I am thrilled to have been selected from a pool of extremely qualified candidates. It’s the town I’ve lived in for over 8 years, and I stayed here even when it meant commuting 1:45 each way to San Jose for work. I love San Rafael and am honored to be able to serve as Library Director. We have an extraordinarily dedicated staff and our support groups (Friends, Board, and Foundation) care about this library tremendously. I am lucky to have such a great group of people to work with!
You can read more about the new job in the story in our local paper.
If any directors have advice for a newbie, please pass it on! My ears are wide open!
