Rob Lesher received his MLS from Syracuse University in 1996. Over his professional career he worked for the Adams County Library System as Head of Information Services, Assistant Director/IT Director, and Executive Director. He worked as the Executive Director for the Dauphin County Library System. I have served as PaLA President, Treasurer, and ALA Councilor. I have just finished my six year term on the PaForward Steering Committee. I believe strongly in the power of the public library to change lives, but to be successful at that, the library needs to be a part of the community and look to the community for insight into what its goals should be.
