Welcome To Our New Director!

The Lee Library Board of Directors and Staff enthusiastically welcome Damon Vorce as our new Director. Some of you may already know Damon from the Teen Space, because he is currently our Young Adult Coordinator and has been with us since April. Damon has a Masters of Science in Information Service from the University at Albany and holds a Public Librarian's Professional Certificate. He brings to this position over 10 years of experience working in public libraries in various capacities, as well as management experience. His first official day in the new role will be February 8. Please join us in welcoming Damon when you see him in the library.
