Changes in the NYSALB Board
Sam Patton, Editor
Summer 2009 issue of Trustee
The NYSALB board limits members to not more than three terms, so Richard Strauss, our President since spring 2007, ended his nine years on the board, and
his term as President. His contributions to NYSALB and his fierce advocacy for libraries will be missed. Our new President is Mary Ellen O’Connor, President of the Board of the Albany Public Library.
Another member, Sam Leadly, of the Nioga Library System, has resigned. We will miss him, even after a short tenure.
We welcome a new member, Adria Ripka. She has been a member of the Board of the Salina Free Library in Mattydale, just outside of Syracuse, for about ten years. Before that she was a member of their Friends group. She is a native of Syracuse, and currently works as a Career Consultant for Onondaga County. She has a degree in Music History/Theory, but says she no longer performs or even plays the piano very much. Her hobbies include walking, reading and painting. She also volunteers with her local YMCA Folksmarch walking group.
