Subject: [Libs-Or] New District Librarian


The Lincoln County Library District will have a new District Librarian starting on Monday, August 20.  I hope all of you will give her a warm welcome as a new public library director to the state. 😂 


MaryKay Dahlgreen will be taking over my job and joining the great group of librarians and library staff we have in Lincoln County.
