Message from the Library and Community Services Director Continued...
I am a 30+ year resident of Hayward and attended local public schools including California State University East Bay in Hayward where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in English. I earned my Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science at San Jose State University. I have ten years of professional experience marked by innovation in library services and local government. I first joined the City of Hayward staff in 2008 as a Supervising Librarian. I was appointed Acting Library Director in 2009. I have served Hayward in my current position as Library and Community Services Director since February 2010. I am proud to serve the community I have called home for so many years.

I want to personally thank you for visiting our department web page. I encourage you to explore and take advantage of the wide range of services we offer. Come and visit our public libraries. Contact our Community Services desk to learn more about the programs and services we provide. Ask us about the many enriching and rewarding volunteer opportunities we offer to people of all ages and backgrounds who want to make a difference in our community.

Delivering excellent customer service to you is our #1 goal. We welcome your comments, questions, ideas, and opinions in order to serve you better. If you have a question you would like answered or an idea that will improve our service to you, pass it on to me. Thanks for your help.
