The Halton Hills Public Library (HHPL) Board has announced the appointment of Beverley King as chief librarian and CEO, effective immediately.
King has been acting in the role for a little over a year and has been advancing the library's new strategic plan initiatives.
“The board has confidence in the leadership that Beverley has shown in the last year and throughout her career at the library,” said library board chair Betsy Cosper. “Her vision and dedication align with the board's strategic priorities, and we are eager to see the continued growth and success she will bring to HHPL.”
King has a Master of Library and Information Science degree from Western University and has worked for the HHPL since 2003. Previously she held the positions of manager of community engagement and manager of community and adult services.
The board says King has foundational expertise in library leadership and is a passionate advocate who continues to innovate and provide library services that are responsive to community needs.
“I want to thank the board for their confidence in my abilities to lead the library as a vital community hub," said King. "I am excited about the future as we continue to enhance and expand library services to all residents and visitors to Halton Hills.”
