New Library Director

My name is Karen Stolfer and I am pleased to introduce myself as the new director of the Hanson Public Library.

Many of you may know me already from my thirteen years as Reference Librarian. In addition to this experience, I have a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from Wheaton College in Norton and obtained my Master of Library and Information Science degree from Simmons College in 2005.

I am excited to be taking on the role of director and look forward to exploring new technology resources, programs, and services that support the library’s mission to encourage lifelong learning.

Please stop by the library with any questions or suggestions, or just to say hello!
