JUNE: Patrick Stewart named as the Library Foundation’s new CEO

We have exciting news to share. On behalf of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees, we are proud to name Patrick Stewart as the Library Foundation’s new CEO.

Patrick Stewart

Patrick is passionate about creating literate communities,
as demonstrated by his nine years of success as Executive Director of Words
Alive, the San Diego literacy foundation. He has had a long career in
non-profit management here in San Diego, as well as in Washington, DC.
Patrick’s leadership ability, strategic planning expertise, capacity-building
skills, and success in building public-private partnerships position the
Library Foundation to expand on our accomplishments and have an even broader
impact in our communities.

Patrick will join the Library Foundation in early June. We
are fortunate he will have a month of transition time with Jay before Jay’s
departure at the end of June. Patrick shares his excitement about meeting you
and we look forward to creating opportunities for you to meet him.

The Foundation’s Board of Trustees and staff, along with our
Library Staff, thank you for helping make San Diego more literate and for
preparing our citizens to participate in the 21st century economy. Your belief
in our Libraries and the San Diego Public Library Foundation has helped make
our communities stronger. We are grateful for your support and ongoing
commitment, particularly during our search for a CEO to succeed Jay Hill.
