NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. – The New Rochelle Public Library Foundation elected Heather Brown to its board at the annual meeting.
In addition, the board approved a new slate of officers: Chris Selin will continue to serve as president, with Gwen Adolph and Lynn Green as vice presidents, while Mindy Eisenberg Stark will continue as treasurer and Cheryl Archbald will continue as secretary.
Brown, a skilled human resources professional who spent nearly two decades in the financial services sector, most recently at J.P. Morgan, holds a master’s degree in public administration from Bernard Baruch College. She is the immediate past president of the Junior League of Westchester on the Sound and a member at large of the American Association of University Women, having served on the board from 2004 to 2008.
The board also accepted the resignation of three members: Betsy Kravitz and founding members Alisa Kesten and Mary Jane Reddington. Selin thanked them all for their contributions to the NRPLF.
The New Rochelle Public Library Foundation, a nonprofit organization, raises resources and provides advocacy to keep the library vibrant, up-to-date and able to serve the diverse needs of the New Rochelle community. Since its incorporation in 1993, the foundation has raised more than $3.1 million for capital improvements including the establishment of a world-class music library, business center and teen room and the renovation of the children's room, Ossie Davis Theater, adjacent meeting room and more.
Most recently, the foundation opened a new Digital Media Center thanks to the generosity of a first-time foundation donor, Heath Windcliff. The center is equipped with the latest Apple technology, and a free summer program is under way, teaching and mentoring interested teens.
