We, like so many of you, have been short staffed. So, it is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to welcome and introduce the newest member of our team, Ragan Snead. Ragan will assume her position as Continuing Education Coordinator beginning on November 1st
. Ragan brings a range of experience to her new position. She has a MLIS, a MBA and is passionate about the importance of continuing education and the business side of libraries. Previously, Ragan worked at Mentor Public Library as a Library Associate and Branch Librarian, providing literacy-based programming for all ages, including book discussions, storytimes and conducting computer classes. She also helped establish their first mobile maker space. In her most recent position at Lakeland Community College Library, she has served as the Circulation Services Coordinator and is a part of the management team. She has been active campus-wide, serving as the Chair of the Lakeland Library marketing
committee, as an Advisor for the Lakeland Library student group, a member of the Lakeland Community College Diversity Committee (2018-present), a member of the Health and Wellness Committee (2018-present) and is the current President of the Lakeland Staff Association Executive Council.
