After a nationwide search for the position of Director at the Fremont Area District Library, the Board of Trustees is pleased to announce that the role will be filled by Jackilyn Roseberry. Jackilyn’s background includes leadership roles in public libraries, with her most recent position being the Branch Operations Manager at Muskegon Area District Library.
The following is an introduction from Jackilyn to our community:
“I am honored to have been chosen as the new Director of the Fremont Area District Library. Libraries have been special to me since long before I became a librarian and Fremont is a community my husband and I fell in love with before moving here. We have only been Fremont residents for a couple of months and we already feel right at home. The community is very warm and welcoming and I have found the library to be the same.
"For the past ten years I have been working in libraries in some capacity and couldn’t imagine doing anything else as a career. I grew up in Pentwater, Michigan, and it was there that I got my first 'real' library job. From Pentwater I went on to the Muskegon Area District Library, where I worked most recently before settling in Fremont.
"My favorite part of working in a library is connecting with my community. In my new role, I am most excited about getting to know everyone and finding out ways the library can better serve you. Whether you’re looking for a book, a fun program to attend, or maybe a gift from our Friends Gift Shop, the library has something for everyone. Please stop by and say hello, I am looking forward to meeting you!”
Please join the library in welcoming Jackilyn Roseberry as the new Director at a welcome reception at the library on Thursday, November 14th from 4:00-6:00 p.m. Tasty treats and refreshments will be served, and all are welcome!
