OAKDALE, MN (07/05/2017) Gary Kirk, President of Tech Logic a Minnesota-based manufacturer of automation systems, has been appointed to the board of United for Libraries, a Trustees and Friends advocacy group.
A division of the American Library Association, United for Libraries was the result of a 2009 merger between two advocacy groups: Friends of the Library USA and the Association for Library Trustees and Advocates. The combination of these advocacy groups promotes the development of strong Trustee and Friends of the Library groups along with providing education and tools to help facilitate a stronger advocacy voice for libraries across the U.S. The combined strength of fiscal development expertise and governing expertise allows for those who advocate for libraries to have deeper insights towards strengthening libraries in their communities.
Gary’s presence on the team will provide a unique vendor-based viewpoint that will help libraries and their advocates understand how to better implement modern workflow improvement systems as well as the means to best choose and acquire the right solutions. Having informed, subject matter-based Friends and Trustee transparent implementations will lead to better patron experiences, and higher library use.Read more
