Most recently, <br />Kelly has served for the past three years as the Circulation Manager of the Lake Oswego Public Library <br />(LOPL). Prior to that, Kelly served as the Director of the Canby Public Library. At the LOPL, Kelly <br />implemented a large project remodel of the first floor area. This remodel included enhancements to the <br />circulation department that included an automated material handling system based on the use of RFID <br />(radio frequency identification). Kelly holds a B.A. in English from Willamette University and a Masters of <br />Library and Information Services from San Jose State University. <br /> <br />Kelly emphasized that she enjoys helping people, designing a library for usability, and enhancing the user <br />experience for all patrons. She shared her future vision for the LOPL – a World Class Library Experience- <br />which includes implementing more partnerships with community groups, and growing the utilization of the <br />LOPL as a gathering place and center for community education. <br /> <br />Kelly noted that currently there are two management openings at the LOPL, an opening for a Reference <br />Manager and one for a Circulation Manager, which is the position that she just vacated when promoted. <br />The interviews for the Reference Manager are scheduled for later in October and the Circulation Manager <br />position closes for new applicants on October 24th. Eleven candidates, both internal and external, are <br />being interviewed for the Reference Manager position. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
