Library CEO Announces Her Retirement

Janet Booth, CEO of Welland Public Library, has announced her retirement effective September 30, 2015.

Janet has been the CEO of Welland Public Library since 1995, and during that time has seen the Library grow and change.  The Library continues to adapt to and offer new technologies while maintaining traditional library services.  Janet also oversaw the planning for the new Main Branch at Civic Square and was instrumental in developing the unique partnership with the District School Board of Niagara and the opening of the Diamond Trail Branch Library.  The partnership with the School Board was the first such partnership in Niagara.

After almost forty years as a professional librarian in public libraries in Cape Breton, Town of Haldimand, Niagara Falls, Stormont Dundas & Glengarry County, and Victoria County, Janet says that she has mixed feelings about the upcoming retirement, but will enjoy having more leisure time for personal and community interests.
