I’m confident that Pam’s deep knowledge of and passion for our work, can-do attitude, forward-thinking nature, growth mindset, and entrepreneurial spirit will serve her and her team, MCLS, and the libraries we serve well as she begins in her management role.” Pam will continue to be based near Lafayette, Indiana.
