Welcome September and welcome back, Erika!

I’ve just come to an end of an 11-month term as Interim CEO at the library while Erika enjoyed her parental leave. It was an amazing challenge and an incredible opportunity. I had the chance to work with many new people in Perth and the surrounding townships in my dealings with the Library Board and our community partners. The learning curve was steep at times with so many new situations to navigate. I am most grateful to have had the chance to work alongside a dedicated and outstanding staff through this experience.

Although the year was full of circumstances and challenges I could never have predicted, I’m so very grateful to have had this opportunity!
