The Sonoma County Library Commission, at its Jan. 7 meeting, voted to hire Ann Hammond as the new, permanent director for the library, which spans 12 branches, two stations and multiple special collections and libraries. "I am really excited to have the opportunity to work with Ann," said Reece Foxen, Chairperson of the Library Commission. "I believe she has the exact balance of expe- rience and skills the library needs." Hammond comes to Sonoma County from Lexington, Ky where she is serving as the executive director of the Lexington Public Library. This is Hammond's third position as a library executive in California, serving in leader- ,~].~ ;.1o rol o in San Diego and Alameda counties before her position in Kentucky. Hammond is experienced in public library manage- ment, budgeting, strategic planning and collections planning. Under her tenure, the Lexington library system renovated most of its branch- es and increased donations and community outreach. "Kentucky is one of the friendliest and most beautiful states in the nation, and will always have a special place in my heart," Hammond said. "But California is home, and I am overjoyed to be returning, and especially to be joining the Sonoma County Library team. This is an excellent library and I look forward to working with the staff and commission to continue growing services for the peo- ple of Sonoma County." Prior to her first library job in 1995, Hammond was a U.S. Navy officer, a stay-at- home mom, an agronomist and a forensic scientist. In the 1990s, she met Deanna Marcum, who at the time served as the dean of the library school at Catholic University in Washington, D.C. "Within 10 minutes, Deanna convinced me that not only did I want to be a librarian, I had always want- ed to be a librarian," Hammond said. "And she was right, there is no place in our society that is as positive and welcoming as a public library and I feel honored to be a librarian." The Sonoma County Library has been without a permanent director since mid-2017, when former direc- tor Brett Lear stepped down. Tracy Gray and Jalme Anderson served as interim directors until July 2018, when Susan Hildreth, a veter- an of local, state and federal library service, joined as interim director. "We have had excellent interim library directors while we searched for the right person. They have invigorated the staff and the commission," Foxen said. "Ann will help us move the library into the future, con- tinulng to give Sonoma County residents a library of which they can be extremely proud." Hammond's first day will be March 11. -- Submitted by Ray Holley i n Call 894-3339 to subscribe.
