The Mandel Public Library has become a vital resource center for many in our community that opens doors to opportunities that would not otherwise be available. I am confident that working with our donors, volunteers, community partners, and business leaders we will expand the reach of these critical services. I am excited to be given the opportunity to serve as the Executive Director of the Library Foundation.

Dean W. Dimke, Executive Director
