The North Baltimore Public Library Board is pleased to announce the selection of Lori Kaufman, Assistant Director, as the new Director of the Library.
Lori Kaufman is a lifelong resident of our community and a North Baltimore High School Graduate. Lori earned her Bachelors of Science in Library Management from Franklin University. While getting her Bachelor’s Degree, Lori also became certified by the American Library Association. She is the only one in the state of Ohio with this certification. Lori has worked at the North Baltimore Public Library for 15 years, beginning as a page.
The Library has always been a big part of Lori’s life. As a child and teenager she used the library, and then as a mother she brought her children up to explore the library. Lori is very proud of the Library and will work diligently to provide the informational needs that the community has come to expect from the library. Lori keeps up on new technology and is our go to girl when new questions arise. (from the Library Newsletter)
A familiar face to North Baltimore Public Library patrons is retiring at the end of December – Connie Phillips, Director.
Connie is retiring after 30 years of service to the community. In recognition of her many years of outstanding service, the North Baltimore Public Library Staff hosted a reception in her honor at the library.
Connie began working at the library in 1985. She became Director in 2012 after serving as Assistant Director for more than 10 years. Over the full period of her service, she has been instrumental in bringing the library into the twenty-first century. She has always been conscientious in her efforts to meet our community’s information needs. Thanks to her, the library remains a cultural and educational center for the community.
