About Me

Hello! My name is Amy Behr-Shields and I am the Director of the Summit Free Public Library. With over a decade of public library experience in a variety of roles, my goal is always to weave the library into the fabric of the community and make it a welcoming place for all – whether someone is coming in for the first time or coming back because they enjoy everything the library has to offer. I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish, with minors in Political Science and Criminology, from Miami University in Ohio. I also have my Master’s in Library Science from Syracuse University and I am a Certified Professional with the Society of Human Resource Management. On a personal level, I love to read a wide variety of books that right now includes parenting e-audiobooks, non-fiction books that dive into human behavior, and WWII historical fiction. I also love to travel and do the NYT daily crossword!
