The Provincial Library System Up and Running!

It’s time to say farewell to Eleanor Crumblehulme, current Library Director for Lakeland Library Region. We are all going to miss your infectious positive energy and tireless efforts at finding innovative ways to improve library services for members of the public. You have provided Lakeland with a vision and plan to move forward and we are all going to feel the loss that your leadership and guidance has provided us over the years.
It is tough to say goodbye but we wish you all the best as you head out to British Columbia for new opportunities!
