Speer to build on library's excellence
By Andrea Hirsch/Times Sentinel editor CNHI
Just as Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library Executive Director Martha Catt says goodbye, new library Executive Director Jacob Speer says hello.
The Library Board of Trustees announced on Monday, May 10, that Speer, a current Indiana State Library employee, would replace Catt as executive director of the library.
Speer earned his masters degree in library science in 2003 from Indiana University, Bloomington and before that, had worked in various libraries including university, public and academic libraries. While he was earning his degree, Speer said he worked at the Donors Forum of Chicago with a specialized collection of philanthropy, foundation and non-profit material. After school, he started working for the Indiana State Library as the supervisor of the library development office and has been doing so for the past 5 1/2 years.
Speer says he thinks the library does a great job as far as programming, has a strong collection and are innovators in technology. He also says he hopes to bring another set of experience to the position.
"I am looking forward to diving in and bring a different set of experience," he said. "I have background in statewide services, experience with trustee training and have trained librarians."
LeeAnn Biggs, president of the Library Board of Trustees, said the board chose Speer because of his unique combination of experience, talent and enthusiasm to the library.
"We now will switch to our onboarding plan in which Catt will have a bridging period with (Speer).
We are very pleased to have Jacob as part of our excellent team."
Speer also said he thought it would be a smooth transition into the position.
