Berks County Public Libraries is pleased to announce and welcome Amy Resh as the new system administrator.
Appointed by the County commissioners, Resh will oversee support services to the county’s member libraries and will work closely with the system’s Board of Directors to develop and improve countywide library service.
Resh joins the library system from her previous position as director of the Emmaus Public Library and brings along her knowledge of Berks County libraries from her time as director of the Boone Area Library.
“I am delighted to be stepping into this role as system administrator for the Berks County Library System,” Resh said. “I believe in the strength of Berks County’s libraries. In this role, I seek to maximize our efforts as a system to empower our member libraries as they continue to evolve and meet the needs of our community.”
Resh earned her Master of Library and Information Science degree from Drexel University after completing her undergraduate study in library science at Kutztown University. Additionally, Resh holds a master’s degree in Business Administration from Alvernia University.
Her experience managing library budgets comes at a time when library funding remains level, neither increasing nor decreasing. Resh knows the benefits libraries bring to their communities and is determined to best utilize the system’s resources to better serve the county’s residents.
“Libraries provide widespread access to information and technology for people of any age,” Resh continued. “Through transformative services, events, and expertise, Berks County libraries help to strengthen and enrich the lives of people in our community.”
