Though not born on Six Nations Territory, my roots run deep here. I appreciate the value of the Library as an institution and community hub. As an English major with a keen interest in writing, supporting the Library through the Friends of SNPL Foundation is a natural fit. With knowledge of the wants and needs of the Library by serving as Board Chair since 2008, I feel that I contribute a special perspective to the Foundation. I have also served six years on the Ontario Library Boards’ Association Council as Regional Representative, Vice President, President, and Past President, which has given me the opportunity to make contact with significant people in the library world.
