We are pleased to announce that Anna Yackle has joined the Illinois Heartland Library System as our new Membership Coordinator. Anna comes to us from the Indian Trails Library where she served as Business and Career Services Liaison. She’s had experience as a public library director as well as many years of service at the North Suburban Library System.
When asked what her hopes were for this position, Anna replied:
Having held a variety of positions in special, academic and public libraries plus another library system, I feel like libraries have become a part of my DNA. This century is a defining time for libraries and I want to help members and their boards stay the vital, beating heart of their communities. To do this I feel it is crucial that we all work together to identify expectations, needs, and resources and build on our shared knowledge to utilize what we currently have and target what we need for the future.
