A Note from Akhila to You

With mixed emotions I want to share that I have been promoted as the Branch Manager at Maud Marks Library.  I’m really excited about the next chapter in my career and look forward to this new challenge.  At the same time I’m saddened to leave the Barbara Bush Library, staff, and the wonderful community who has given me so much love and support over the past 10 years.

I hope my contributions have made a positive impact on the families and community of the Library.  I’m confident the wonderful staff at Barbara Bush will continue the vision and values which I have striven for during my tenure.

I’m grateful for all the friendships and relationships I’ve developed at the Barbara Bush library.  I will cherish this for the rest of my career.
