What inspired you to take this role?
In my past role as the Library’s Audit & Risk Committee Chair, I developed a deep affection for the Library and all it has to offer the community. The Library's collection continues to inspire me with its incredible depth and breadth, which is ever changing and evolving. I have a passion for lifelong learning, and the many and varied dimensions that can take. I am a firm believer that the Library should be accessible to and connect with everyone in the community - even those who may not consider themselves traditional library-goers. I am privileged to be able to continue to play a role in its future.
