New Director at Tualatin Public Library

Tualatin Public Library welcomes Jerianne Thompson as its new Library Manager.   Thompson is a familiar face in the library; she has been the Interim Library Manager since last year, and has been the Public Services Supervisor since July 2011. Thompson is taking over for former Library Manager Abigail Elder, who is now Library Director at Beaverton City Library.

Prior to moving to Tualatin, Thompson previously served as Collection Development Coordinator and Branch Supervisor for the Linebaugh Public Library System in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Thompson holds a Master of Information Science from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.

Paul Hennon, Community Services Director calls Thompson an effective leader charged with creating “an inviting community center where learning, discovery, and interaction flourish.”

“Tualatin Library is the heart of our community, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to shape the vision of the library as we plan for the future,” says Thompson.
