Sharon Hanna has taken over the branch head position at Westbank Library.

Hanna brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, both from her time as reference librarian at the Kelowna branch since 2009 and as branch manager in the Vancouver Island Regional Library system before that.

“It will be really great to get involved with the community—to build relationships, to carry on the good work that Judy has been doing and to instigate some of my own ideas,” said Hanna.

“It is a more independent position that will be fun and challenging: Managing people and getting to know the staff and library patrons.”

Outgoing community librarian Judy Hammond—who has been with Okanagan Regional Library for 18 years—was honoured for her work at a celebration May 31.

The Westbank branch is located in the Westridge Mall at 2484 Main St.
