Delaware Librarian Receives Ohio Library Council “Librarian Of The Year.”

Librarian of the Year: Mary Jane Santos, Delaware County District Library

Mary Jane Santos, Director, Delaware County District Library (DCDL), was appointed Director at a time when the county population had exploded, becoming one of the fastest growing areas in the nation. Unfortunately, the library’s budget was not increasing to meet the needs of these new community members. Santos developed a strategy focused on two goals: pass a levy and build a branch in an area of rapidly expanding population. Under her leadership, both of these goals were accomplished. In recent years, DCDL has expanded services and facilities to keep up with the community. Santos’ strong and steady guidance has allowed staff to carry forward with innovations and changes while keeping the “small library” team feeling. During her tenure, the library has nearly doubled in size and continued to increase in circulation, visitors, programs, cardholders, and computer use. Santos has developed partnerships with schools, other libraries, higher education institutions, law enforcement, and businesses that strengthen the library’s importance in the community.

The Ohio Library Council (OLC) is continuing its tradition of honoring some of the best and brightest individuals and organizations in the Ohio public library community through its Awards and Honors program. The 2014 honorees have demonstrated outstanding
leadership and remarkable dedication to providing the best possible library service. Santos will receive her award at the Awards and Honors Luncheon on Oct. 8 at the OLC Convention and Expo in Columbus. Santos was selected based on nominations and recommendations received from her peers in the Ohio public library community.
