Lynn Firman has been named Head of Circulation Services at Lake Villa District Library. A long-time employee of the library, Firman began her career in 2004 and spent the last seven years as the Assistant Head of Circulation. She moved into the top position when Debbie Rosen retired after 32 years of service.
Firman oversees a staff of 25 which includes circulation, inter-library-loan and shelving. She brings a strong library-patron focus to the position and is dedicated to helping her staff develop strong customer service skills. "I couldn't be happier," said Firman, "the job is interesting, the staff is great and I am eager to help make Lake Villa District Library the best it can be."
An avid reader, Firman is a great resource for a book recommendation and is always happy to hear what library patrons are reading. She lives in Ingleside with her husband Rich and is adjusting to being an empty-nester. Her daughter Lisbet began college in the fall.
