The Mamaroneck Public Library Board has announced that Jennifer O’Neill has been appointed the new director of the Mamaroneck Public Library. Ms. O’Neill, a Mamaroneck resident, will begin her leadership role on October 13, 2020. Familiar with the community, she knows how proud the Board is of the library and how important it is to reach out to meet the needs of the entire community.
O’Neill has a wide range of library experiences. Most recently she was the director at Shrub Oak, a similar size Westchester library. She has also directed professional development and implemented long-range plans for the Queens Public Libraries. She is known for bringing a collaborative spirit among staff, customers, and community agencies and groups. Her expertise will enable the library to move forward on the new 5-year plan.
She is personable and energetic, qualities much needed to meet the challenges the library faces in 2020.
Ellen Freeman, Mamaroneck Public Library Board President, noted, “At this time, I would also like to thank Ed Falcone, our interim director. Mr. Falcone, with his expertise and calm presence, was able to guide us through a successful reopening of our library. It has been a great pleasure to work with him over the past 6 months.”
