Library News


Sara Brown

Welcome New Library Director, Sara Brown!

Following the retirement of former library director Roberta Thomas in June, the Grayslake Area Public Library and its Board of Trustees are pleased to welcome Sara Brown as our new director. Her first day on the job was February 4th.

Born and raised in Illinois, Brown formerly served as Deputy County Librarian at the Merced County Library in Merced, California where she supervised and managed 11 branches in a county library system with a population of 268,000 residents. Preceding that, she was the City Library Manager at the Tulare Public Library in Tulare, California. Brown holds a Master of Library and Information Science degree from San Jose State University.

“My chosen career as a librarian is about connection. I intend to bring a new emphasis on linking library resources with people beyond our walls – out in the community, where they live, work, and play. Through community engagement strategies we can empower more people and transform more lives. I am truly looking forward to my new role at the Grayslake Library and welcome your feedback and ideas on how we can better serve this wonderful community.”

Please join us in welcoming Sara Brown at her public Meet and Greet event at the library on Tuesday, April 9 from 5-7 pm during National Library Week. We hope to see you there!
