Executive Director David Seleb

This Wednesday Journal interview features David Seleb, Executive Director, and Cyndee Landrum, Assistant Director of Public Services, both who share a preview of great things to come at the library.

"Since arriving last May at his new post as executive director of the Oak Park Public Library, David Seleb has been in a transitional mode, observing and assessing things internally. But as the New Year begins, Seleb said he will branch out into the community to launch a series of formal and informal conversations, in an effort to discern what aspirations Oak Parkers have for the public library that began serving them in 1903.

Along with him will be Cynthia "Cyndee" Landrum, the public library's newly hired assistant director for public services.  Part of her role will be to take the library further into the world of digital content.  It is an area with which the co-author of research on topics including future content creation, copyright and fair use, and race and gender in library leadership positions is familiar and ready to develop beyond the skillset she possesses now."  Read the full story.
