After nine years at the helm of East Central Regional Library (ECRL), Barbara Misselt will retire April 1, 2017. In a letter accepted by the ECRL Board, she wrote:
Thank you for the opportunity to lead this organization in providing library service to the region for the past 9 years. I appreciate the support and positive commitment of the Board as well as our partner counties.
I believe that ECRL is in a good position to continue positive growth with a competent leadership team and staff. I have enjoyed the relationship with staff and board team and found this a fulfilling career.
Ann Hutton, SELCO Executive Director since 1996, has announced her plans to retire May 1, 2017. In her letter to the SELCO Board of Directors she stated:
Having started my library career as a school librarian in Wisconsin, a state with strong regional libraries, I had a goal of working at a strong region. Each move — Georgia, Illinois, and Minnesota — were steps in that direction. I will admit that when I started at SELCO on August 27, 1984, I thought I would be in the region just a few years before moving to the metro. But, southeast Minnesota captured my heart and fulfilled my professional goals. It has been an honor to work at SELCO as Regional Librarian, Assistant Director, and Executive Director.
