On behalf of the SWFLN Board, I am happy to announce that we have hired a new SWFLN Executive Director! His name is Brian Chase. Brian has 20 years of progressively responsible leadership experience in diverse library settings, including 14 years as Library Director for the Normal Public Library in Normal, Illinois. Brian also has extensive grant funding experience. Please join the Board in welcoming Brian to the SWFLN Organization. Brian will begin working for SWFLN July 1st, 2022. Please watch for future messages from Brian.
The SWFLN Board would also like to thank Natasha Hayes for serving as Interim Director during this search process. Natasha and Taylor Post have been working diligently for the past seven months to make sure that SWFLN continues to operate and provide ongoing services to all our members.
Please feel free to reach out to me or any Board member if you have any questions or comments.
Anthony Valenti, SWFLN Board President
