New director of library services appointed

    The Drumheller Public Library will have new leadership moving forward as the Library Board appoints Mellissa D’Onofrio-Jones as its new director of library services.
    Jones replaces Linde Turner who recently resigned from the Drumheller Public Library after 23 years of service. The board made the appointment effective November 1. She comes at a time of transition as the library prepares for its move to the Badlands Community Facility.
 D’Onofrio-Jones and her family have recently relocated from London, Ontario to Drumheller, and she is currently enrolled at the University of Western Ontario. She's completing her final courses, working towards earning her Masters of Library and Information Science degree.
    She brings with her a background in teaching and early childhood education. She has a passion for public library services.
    D’Onofrio-Jones is eager to work with the staff and the community as the library continues to provide programs and services to make the institution a vibrant community resource.
