The Lansdowne Public Library is pleased to announce the appointment of its new Library Director, Sandra Samuel Giannella. Ms Giannella will begin her position at the Library on Monday, March 7, 2011.
Sandra Giannella, a resident of Wayne, comes to Lansdowne from the Phoenixville Public Library where she has been Director of Youth and Young Adult Services since 2007. In addition to her work at Phoenixville, she has had a wealth of professional library experience at public libraries in Haddonfield, New Jersey, and Poolesville, Maryland, and as a Library Media Specialist in the Montgomery County, Maryland, School System.
Sandra has been excited to learn how integral the Library is within the Lansdowne community and can envision the Library’s role in the community’s revitalization plans. She hopes to expand the Library’s outreach to the all segments of the library’s service area by creative sharing of information within and beyond the Library building. In her visits to the Library, she has been impressed by Lansdowne’s friendly staff and the welcoming library building with its beautiful artwork in the Children’s room and the recent rain garden project.
The Library Board of Trustees will be scheduling a formal reception to welcome Sandra Giannella to the Library and the community at a future date to be announced.
