The public is invited to attend a reception for the new County Librarian Sean Casserley on Tuesday, July 31, 2012 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Central Resource Library, 9875 W. 87th St., Overland Park, KS. The Friends of the Johnson County Library and the Library Foundation are hosting the event which will provide an opportunity for members of the community to meet Casserley.
The Library Board named Sean Casserley to the top library post in April after a nationwide search. Casserley comes to Johnson County Library from the Allen County (IN) Public Library where he was employed since 1994, most recently as Bibliographic and Information Technology Manager. Casserley succeeds Donna Lauffer who retired as County Librarian in December 2011. He will be the sixth County Librarian since the founding of the library 60 years ago.
Johnson County Library was established in 1952 and serves a population of more than 475,000 in the metropolitan Kansas City area with 12 branch libraries and a Central Resource Library. The mission of the library is to provide access to ideas, information, experiences and materials that support and enrich people’s lives.
