New executive director hired for regional library
Stephanie Hall has been hired to replace the retiring Lesley Dieno as executive director for the Okanagan Regional Library.
The search was spearheaded by the Board of Trustees Personnel Committee, led by Marilyn Harkness, who said, “Ms. Hall brings a wealth of experience, knowledge, and passion to the position and the board looks forward to her endeavors on behalf of the ORL’s future.”
Hall is currently the director of public library planning with the province of Saskatchewan. She is a graduate of the Faculty of Information Studies at the University of Toronto and has 23 years of varied public library, academic library and special library experience.
Prior to her current role, she was the chief librarian with Powell River Public Library, and director/CEO of the Chinook Regional Library in Saskatchewan.
“I’m really looking forward to working with the board and staff of the Okanagan Regional Library,” Hall said.
