Leaders may come and go, but institutions endure.
As the new acting director of the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System, I am committed to a smooth transition from one director to another for our staff, member library users and communities.
Looking back, we thank former director Linda Mielke for her service. Looking ahead, we are hopeful about what the future will bring.
One thing is sure: we will stay true to our mission to foster, strengthen, and improve public library services within our two-county service area.
Most of all, we will remain focused on the business at hand – to help member libraries provide the library materials and services their patrons need.
Library leaders celebrated many accomplishments that had taken place over the years, when the System celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2010. Now I look forward to working with you as the next chapter in its long history unfolds.
