“We are very excited to have Lacey accept our employment offer and serve as a leader for our library,” stated Chris Minich, Chairwoman of Bradford Area Public Library Board of Trustees.
Ms. Love was most recently employed as a Library Assistant at Scott Township Public Library, located south of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She has a broad background in librarianship, having worked or volunteered in both collegiate and public libraries for the past 6 years. She received her Bachelor of Arts in English, while minoring in Psychology and Economics from Allegheny College. Ms. Love then pursued her Master of Science in Library and Information Science, earning her Master's degree through the GSLIS (Graduate School of Library and Information Science) program at the University of Illinois. “Her strong credentials, excellent work ethics and passion for librarianship will provide a great asset to our Bradford Area Public Library and community,” remarked Chris Minich
Ms. Love will be relocating to Bradford in the next few weeks. In the interim, she will provide consultation in the development of staff, which is representative of her initiative as a leader by becoming involved with the management of the library during this transition. She is currently employed by a library that staffs 7 librarians with a strong delineation of duties. Lacey has a strong appreciation for the roles and responsibilities of the various levels of employees and volunteers, with a strong devotion to serving the patrons.
