The Friends would like to congratulate our City Librarian, Susan Hildreth, on her appointment as Director of Museum and Library Services by President Barrack Obama. On December 22, 2010, Hildreth was confirmed by the Senate and she will begin her tenure at the end of January. Although she will be missed here in Seattle, we are proud that Susan was honored with such a prestigious appointment. Good luck, Susan! We know you will be able to help libraries and museums all over the United States in your new role!
