Amanda Peña is the new library director. A longtime resident of Portland, she began her career at the library in high school as a clerk for Temecula Public Library in Southern California. With a 20 year career in libraries, she’s done everything from driving a bookmobile to helping incarcerated youth find their love of reading.
For the last 14 years, she worked at the Hillsboro Public Library, a suburb of Portland, Oregon, in a variety of roles with her previous job as the Training and Learning Librarian Supervisor. She loved living in the Pacific Northwest, but she and her family decided to move to Omaha in October to be closer to the family for their two-year-old daughter.
She is passionate about the important role of public libraries in developing vibrant and engaged communities. She is excited to meet everyone and to learn more about the Ashland community.
We need your feedback!
Every three years the Ashland Public Library develops a Community Needs Response Plan. We encourage you to fill out the attached survey. Please also share with those you know. We are making it available via email, Facebook page, our website, and paper copies at the library and Ashland City Hall. If you would like multiple paper copies dropped of at your location please contact the Library Director, Heather St.Clair.
We encourage people of all ages, living and working in and around Ashland to fill out the survey. You do not need to use the library or have a library card to fill out the survey.
You will be taken to a Google Docs Form.
Thank you for your participation!
Heather St.Clair – Library Director
