Trustee Spotlight: Group 2 Representative , Eleanore Chamberland
"Librarians are almost always very helpful and often almost absurdly knowledgeable.Their skills are probably very underestimated and largely underemployed." , The Social Audit Consumer Handbook , Macmillan, 1978, p. 41
MMLL Trustee, Eleanore Chamberland, is a Librarian who continually adds to her knowledge base and is willing to share what information she has.
She first discovered her passion for libraries when she started as a volunteer at a school library.Finding that she enjoyed the field, she went to the University of Hawaii where she earned her MLS degree.Her higher education experience was not limited to just book work.Hawaii has many folk legends that Eleanore heard from story tellers while on the island, which was a memorable and fun experience.
After her husband's job with the National Park Service transferred him to Colorado, Eleanore worked for the Arapahoe Library District, beginning on the Bookmobile, then in a High School/Public Library combination, a larger library, and ending as Associate Director.When her husband retired, they moved back to their home state of Michigan and bought a house in Suttons Bay.Because of her love for libraries; Eleanore volunteered at the Suttons Bay Library and was asked to serve on their board.In 1992, Eleanore was approached by former Suttons Bay library Director, Suzanne Latta Hoff, about serving on the MMLL Board, a position that she has held since that time.
While being a trustee, Eleanore has helped MMLL through many transitions.She has served as the President for several terms and has been instrumental in the changes that have been made to the Plan of Service.Effective, open communication among members and the league trustees is on her list of greatest challenges of being a trustee.Being a Librarian, Eleanore enjoys serving on the board because she has the opportunity to interact and learn from fellow librarians and trustees.As MMLL works toward becoming more financially stable, she hopes that the cooperative will be able to offer more opportunities for our members to attend conferences by offering scholarships and that the league can help with the costs associated with MeL Delivery.Anything that MMLL can do to relieve some of the staffing, financial, and educational needs of its members is something that she supports.
Eleanore is willing to lend a helping hand wherever she can.Right now, she is focusing her efforts on Library millages.Suttons Bay is asking for a millage in August as are numerous other members Libraries. http://www.record-eagle.com/2006/apr/08library.htm
Eleanore has attended several workshops about millages. (and has served on several committees that have worked on millage campaigns.) The cooperative has a packet of information that she has compiled to assist those with a millage effort that is available at the office.
Her dedication to librarians doesn't leave her much free time, but when Eleanore has the opportunity, she enjoys quilting and gardening.Less often than she would like, she travels to Colorado and visits her three daughters.
Eleanore brings a rich history of experiences to the board and she is enthused about helping libraries.We thank Eleanore for her dedication to MMLL and the libraries that she represents.
