I want to thank the Ilsley Public Library and the Sarah Partridge Library community for a warm welcome. During my first month as director it has been thrilling to familiarize myself with the incredible level of activity taking place in these libraries. It is an honor to lead an institution with exciting public programming, a thriving collection, and a passionate staff. I anticipate many productive and enjoyable years in Middlebury.

Libraries are at their best when they listen and respond to the needs of their communities. It is our job to provide resources and services to Middlebury, and it is up to you to determine what those resources and services should be. I am eager to learn from you and invite each of you to stop by my office, write me an email, or give me a call to share your thoughts. I am always happy to discuss the library’s current and future goals, and look forward to achieving them together.

 Kind regards,

Dana Hart

Director, Ilsley Public Library
