SLA appoints new Chief Executive

Tricia AdamsThe SLA is delighted to announce the appointment of Tricia Adams as new Chief Executive of the Association. Tricia writes:

"As a professional librarian with more years experience than I care to mention – I have worked in several sectors including government libraries and as a self employed information specialist but have come back to my favourite – of working with children, in various guises, for the last 17 years. This has included a spell as a primary school librarian, before moving back to public libraries in my home county of Northamptonshire, where I have been Head of Children’s and Young People’s Public Library Services and the manager of the Schools’ Library Service – Learning Resources for Education. A lifelong love of reading and collecting children’s books, amongst others, has created a collection so rambling that the house has to be extended every few years!

I am looking forward to being able to use my experience to continue the excellent work the SLA has established and I look forward to meeting many of you as I start my new role as Chief Executive in October."
