Kansas Governor Laura Kelly recently appointed four people to the State Library of Kansas Board, including Dorothy Bramlage Public Library Director Susan Moyer, according to an announcement made Wednesday.
“Libraries continue to be an important part of our communities,” Kelly said. “These appointees, with over 100 years of combined library experience, will be valuable additions to the board.”
According to the release, the board advocates for statewide library services and resources, encourages cooperation among libraries and promotes and encourages innovative services within libraries.
“The board promotes cooperation with the Kansas Board of Regents to ensure the inclusion of libraries on the KAN-ED network and continues the availability of statewide library reference resources,” it said.
Moyer has 40 years of experience in libraries. In addition to her tenure at the local public library, she worked for six years at the Texas State Capitol Legislative Reference Library and for five years at the University of Texas Library. Moyer has also served on Junction City’s Board of Zoning Appeals and the Geary County Solid Waste Commission, according to the release.
She and the other board appointees do not need to be confirmed by the state senate before taking their seats on the board.
Moyer could not be reached for comment by press time Thursday morning.
