The Sylvan Lake Municipal Library is searching for a new library director.
The library took to Facebook on Jan. 13 to bid farewell to the former library director, Andrea Newland.
“She has been a breath of fresh air, always willing to get her hands dirty and dive into the thick of it to get the job done,” reads the post.
Newland joined the library team just before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, helping to lead the way through renovations, closures, and virtual programs.
“The Sylvan Lake Library staff and patrons wish Andrea all the best in the future and thank her from the bottom of our hearts for everything that she has done for us. The library is better for having known her,” the post continues, adding that Newland is moving on to “bigger and better things.”
Library board chair Briana Darbyshire informed Sylvan Lake News via email that the Town is currently recruiting a new library director.
The board will fill the role once they identify a successful candidate.
Assistant director Jeri Wolf is currently overseeing the Sylvan Lake Municipal Library team and operations while the director position is vacant.
Those looking to apply for the role can find more information on the library’s website.
