Library Director. Her appointment is effective November 1, 2014. She succeeds the late Barbara J. Pearson, who served as District Librarian for 10 years.A graduate of Regis University, Kittay holds a Masters in Library Science from the University of North Texas. A recognized library leader, Kittay brings more than 10 years of professional library experience to the Altadena Library District with expertise in business/financial management, capital campaigns, facilities design and renovation, emerging technologies and innovative library programming for patrons of all ages.A strong financial and operations manager, Kittay helped turn-around the poorly performing Anything Libraries in the Rangeview Library District of Colorado in five short years to recipient of the 2010 National Medal for Museum and Library Services. This achievement brought Anythink Libraries cover story recognition in Library Journal and The Los Angeles Times.Most recently, Kittay served as County Librarian/Director for Mendocino County, California, where she oversaw five libraries and a bookmobile serving a 3,878 square mile area. Kittay has also held leadership positions within the Garfield County Public Library District, Colorado.“The Altadena Library District Board is overjoyed to select Mindy Kittay as our new District Library Director from a field of exceptional candidates,” states Trustee Chair David Datz. “We are excited that Kittay has the talent and skills to help us grow our library programs and, in the hope that our Measure A Parcel Tax renewal will pass with flying colors in next week’s general election, we feel we are now poised to provide even more outstanding service and programming to our community, especially in the areas of high technology.”Ms. Kittay adds, “I am honored and excited to be chosen as the next leader of the Altadena Library District. This is a wonderful library district, well loved by its community and operated by a dedicated hard working staff and board. I am looking forward to joining their ranks, meeting the community and working together to achieve the strategic and operational goals of the library.” Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img
