Dear Amigos Library Services Members,

President and CEO of Amigos Library Services, Alan Kornblau, met with representatives from the Board of Directors and resigned from his position effective today, October 25, 2019. The Board is very grateful for Alan’s service to Amigos, libraries and the communities we serve. We wish Alan well in all of his future endeavors.

In light of this change, the Board announces the appointment of Tracy Byerly as the Interim President and Chief Executive Officer of Amigos Library Services. Tracy currently serves as Amigos’ Chief Programs Office. The Amigos Board of Directors will initiate a national search for Amigos’ next President and Chief Executive Officer during its November 20, 2019 board meeting.

Most importantly, Amigos services that you and your libraries depend on will continue as usual.

If you have any questions or issues for the Board, please email them to Trisha Mooney, Executive Support Services Manager at Amigos. The Board will review them at the November 20, 2019 meeting.
