LibraryLinkNJ Executive Board

Following a morning workshop facilitated by Geoff DiMasi and Kate Clayton from P’unk Ave, LibraryLinkNJ’s Executive Board held their first monthly meeting of the new fiscal year.

A key part of the meeting was the annual re-organization of the Board, including the election of a new slate of officers. Please welcome your colleagues to their new leadership roles:

  • President: Kimberly Paone, Matawan-Aberdeen Public Library
  • Vice President: Steven Chudnick, Brookdale Community College
  • Secretary: Lynn Pascale, Collingswood Middle School & High School
  • Treasurer: Rick Van der Wende, Lay Representative
  • Assistant Treasurer: Michelle McGreivey, Hoboken High School

New Board President Kimberly Paone says "I'm fortunate to follow in the capable and kind footsteps of Candice Brown to serve as the new President of the LibraryLinkNJ Executive Board. It is an exciting time for our organization, as we welcome several new members to the Board, and begin the strategic planning process. I look forward to working closely with Kathy Schalk-Greene, the LLNJ staff, and the Board to continue to provide support, service, and surprises to our member libraries."

We echo Kimberly’s warm thanks to former Board President Candice Brown and offer her a big cheer for having led the Board with enthusiasm, skill and good humor through FY16.

Get to know your Executive Board members! The Executive Board page on our website provides a complete list of Board members, as well as contact information for each of them.
