Library Director Ellen Arnold-Robbins retired this year, and she is missed by all of us! Her leadership in this library facilitated many years of friendly service, popular and informative programs, and interesting and relevant collections for our patrons to borrow.
My name is Jessica Jones, and I am the new Library Director. I hope to build on the legacy built by Ellen, and I am so excited to be working here.
Most recently, I was a manager in the Bryan and College Station Public Library System in Texas, and before that, I was the library director at a college in New Mexico. My experience in libraries runs both wide and deep, and I look forward to taking the best parts of it, in combination with the talents of the staff here in Takoma Park, in service of this exceptional community.
I hope that we will have some opportunities to get to know each other soon! Please feel free to reach out and say hello in the meantime at JessicaJ@takomaparkmd.gov.
