Meet our new director! Our new Executive Director, Amy Shipley, is a librarian with nearly 20 years experience in Western Colorado libraries. She really began her career in libraries as a child visiting the Main Branch of Mesa County Libraries where her mother worked. After college, having earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish, Amy didn't have a solid plan for what to do next, so, as many librarians do, she fell into library work by applying for a job at Mesa County Libraries, where she grew up. That part-time position soon morphed into a full-time position, and then into a promotion and a move to an academic library at the then named Mesa State College. While there, Amy decided to pursue her Masters degree in Library and Information Science. Amy received her Master of Library and Information Science degree from Florida State University, studying online while working full time at Mesa State College. Upon receipt of her degree, Amy's first professional position was as Acquisitions Librarian at Garfield County Libraries. Amy worked for 13 years at Garfield County Libraries, promoting to Technical Services Manager, then to Assistant Executive Director. Amy also served as Interim Executive Director. While at Garfield County Libraries, Amy led a ballot measure to "de-Bruce" the library's funding sources, and also helped lead a ballot measure to increase funding for the library. Her favorite part of her job is supervising and leading staff. In other professional work, Amy is the co-chair of the Colorado Association of Libraries Leadership Institute Committee which creates and presents a biennial leadership institute for library staff in Colorado. Learning to lead is a lifelong pursuit for Amy, one which she feels she'll never finish. Amy's passion in library work is supporting and leading staff to help them become the best they can be so that they, in turn, can best serve our community. Outside of work, Amy is a beginner watercolor artist, a hobby she took up during the pandemic to have a creative outlet to support her mental health. She also loves hiking in the summer, cross country skiing in the winter, and fly fishing all of the amazing water we have in our area. And, of course, she loves reading! She'll be listening to lots of audiobooks on her commute to the library. Amy is excited to get to know the people in our community. Please stop by the library to introduce yourself. Amy would love to hear about what you're reading and to share with you her latest read as well.

Author Talk with Julian Rubinstein Julian Rubinstein explores the multigenerational saga of race and politics that runs from the civil rights movement to Black Lives Matter. On the last evening of summer in 2013, five shots rang out in a part of Northeast Park Hill.
