Say hello to our new Deputy Director!

Our IPPL team welcomed a new addition this week! Kristen Lawson joined us as Deputy Director on Monday, Nov. 28.

"I am thrilled to be starting my new position as Deputy Director at the Indian Prairie Library," she said. "I’m looking forward to getting to know the community and continuing the great work the library is doing in providing opportunities to explore, connect, and be inspired."

Kristen has 16 years of library experience including five years as a Youth Services Department Head at the Roselle Public Library. Kristen was also acting director of Roselle in 2021 to cover the director’s family leave.

Please join us in welcoming Kristen to the community.
