After more than five years with the North Grenville Public Library (NGPL), CEO Rachel Brown will be departing to pursue some personal goals.
Ms. Brown joined the Library in June 2018, replacing long-time CEO Sue Higgins. In her time as CEO, she has worked with the Library Board and staff to identify the changing needs and priorities of the community and to deliver customer service excellence. In 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, she and the library staff were able to pivot to meet the new requirements around safe service and program delivery, for which she credits her staff.
“The staff of the North Grenville Public Library are second to none. I feel fortunate to have worked with them, and with our board. I have learned so much, met such wonderful people, and grown to love this warm and welcoming community. I leave the Library knowing that it is in good shape and in great hands,” Ms. Brown said when reflecting on her time as CEO.
The Board would like to thank Ms. Brown for her commitment and compassion and for the spirit of innovation and collaboration that she has brought to NGPL. We wish her the very best moving forward. Board Chair, Stephen Elliott noted, “Under Rachel’s strategic leadership NGPL has expanded its services, enhanced its programming, as well as extended community connections and partnerships. This has strengthened NGPL’s role as an integral community and learning hub for a growing North Grenville.”
