Sandy Towers has been promoted to Assistant Library Director or the Williamsburg Regional Library. Towers will oversee the daily operations of the libraries, supervise the public service departments, and work closely with the Director and the Library Board of Trustees to move major initiatives forward.
Towers recently served for five years as the Youth Services Director for the library. During this time she was instrumental in implementing a robust offering of award winning new programs and services including children’s play areas, Spanish story times, sensory story times for children on the autism spectrum, Cena con Cuentos (Dinner with a Story) events, and STEAM Saturdays, a series of family-friendly programs that focus on building science, technology, engineering, arts, and math skills.
Towers recently coordinated the expansion of the delivery of Youth and Neighborhood Outreach Services to include FunFest Saturdays, an extension of the STEAM Saturdays series, at the Abram Frink Jr. Community Center, and special pop-up library events for children across the region.
“Sandy has infused Youth Services with an exciting level of enthusiasm, activity, and leadership. I am greatly looking forward to working with Sandy and the entire library team to take WRL to the next level of public service for all ages,” said Betsy Fowler, Director of the Williamsburg Regional Library.
