PLYMOUTH, Mich. – Shauna Anderson has been named the new director at the Plymouth District Library.

Anderson will start her new position Monday, June 21. Library leadership said she selected from a broad field of candidates, following an “extensive search” by the Plymouth District Library Board of Trustees, with assistance from Mortimore Consulting.

Anderson most recently served as the Assistant Director of Taylor Community library and is the former Supervisor of Young Adult Services at Skokie Public Library (Skokie, Ill.),

“Drawing from a diverse background in education, technology, and community development, Shauna knows that strong public libraries are at the heart of close-knit communities. She is committed to building on established library practices to provide learning experiences that are social, participatory, interest-driven, and relevant for people of all ages and backgrounds. That effort depends on cultivating an empowered team of staff who find joy in their work and seek out meaningful connections with patrons,” reads a statement from the library.

Anderson holds an MSi from the University of Michigan School of Information with a double-specialization in Library Science and Community Informatics.

Library-goers may recognize her as she formerly served as a Teen Services Librarian at the Plymouth District Library.
