Posted May 15, 2013 in  General

On April 22, 2013, the Portage District Library Board met in a regular public session and concluded their internal search process by taking official action and offering Interim Library Director Christine Klien the position of permanent Library Director of the Portage District Library, effective May 1, 2013, which she accepted. Library Board Chair Betty Lee Ongley stated that: “Christine Klien has fulfilled our requirements for education, skills and experience for the Library Director position. She has exceeded our expectations in terms of her ability to lead by example and garner the goodwill of the community, which she has done very well during her tenure at PDL. There were many expressions of support for Ms. Klien from former board members, community leaders and library staff, so we are confident that she will evolve successfully in her role as Director of the Portage District Library.”
