It's All Synergy (the Illinois Library Leadership Initiative) at the Plainfield Library!

With the addition of Head of Youth Services Veronica De Fazio and Trustee Terry Cottrell, the Plainfield Library now has what has to be a record number of Synergists!

Started in 2002, Synergy: the Illinois Library Leadership Initiative trains and supports librarians to become leaders in the profession and in their own organizations. Each year, up and coming leaders from all types of libraries throughout the state are selected to participate. The Plainfield Library now has eight Synergists between its Board and staff:

Julie Milavec (yours truly), Library Director (2003)
Lisa Pappas, Assistant Library Director (2007)
Michelle Roubal, Head of Reference and Resders Services (2002)
Veronica Schwartz De Fazio, Head of Youth Services (2002)
Louise Svehla, Reference and Readers Services Librarian (2009)
Lauren Offerman-Vice, Reference and Readers Services Librarian (2009)
Sue Parsons, Youth Services Librarian (2010)
Terry Cottrell, Trustee (2006)
