With great pleasure, the Trustees of our Library announce the appointment of Susan Gilbert as our next Library Director. Susie is well known to many of you, having been the librarian at the Kensington Elementary School for the past six years. In that post she has become an invaluable resource to both students and teachers, in addition to partnering with the town library to introduce young readers to the collection and programs next door.
Moreover, Susie has shown her commitment to a career in library services by recently completing her Masters Degree in Library Information Services. Previously she has worked in area bookstores where her love of reading has been readily apparent and a great benefit to the inventory of those establishments. We look forward to her growing our own collection so that all residents of Kensington will find reading materials that appeal to their particular interests. Further, Susie has shown keen interest in programming, organizing author appearances and discussion groups, so that we are confident our Library will become an even more vital center of cultural activity in the community.
