The Boyertown Community Library Board of Trustees announces the appointment of Denise Pulgino Stout as Executive Director of the library. Charles Wohl, President of the Board of Trustees, stated, “Miss Denise was an unexpected treasure who joined our library one year ago as our youth librarian. While we were fortunate to have applications from a wide array of qualified candidates, Denise’s work with children and youth coupled with her vision, and her leadership led the board to retain her services as our new Director. We are excited to have her leadership working with our board to further enhance the relevance of the Boyertown Community Library with our many communities.”
Ms. Stout, who had been serving as the Youth Services Director at the Boyertown Community Library, brings a wealth of library and programming experience to her new responsibilities. She secured her first library job because of her experience in children’s theater, and used her skills at the library for helping children learn to love reading and the library. Ms. Stout has developed expertise at presenting programs that are not only entertaining, but educational and based on literacy skills.
She received her Master’s in Library Science from Clarion University of Pennsylvania in 2002 and has been involved in the Pennsylvania Library Association, participating on several state-wide committees. She is looking forward to serving the community in her new role as Executive Director of the Boyertown Community Library.
