Director's Message

  • Welcoming you to the Waldport Public Library

    Sue Bennett, Library Director, welcomes you!!

    As many of you know, Jill Tierce retired as the Library Director in August leaving the position open which I am happy to fill.  My name is Sue Bennett and I started my new position as the Waldport Library Director on October 3rd

    I come to Waldport most recently from Austin, Texas where for the past 10 years I was the Program Coordinator at the Texas State Library and Archives Commission .  I worked with the Texas public libraries to provide interlibrary loan services to their patrons.  Prior to moving to Texas, I lived in Flagstaff, Arizona where I started  my library career at the Cline Library at Northern Arizona University.  For almost 20 years, I worked in a variety of positions serving the students, faculty and community of Flagstaff.   I received my undergraduate degree in history from Northern Arizona University and my master’s degree in library science from the University of Arizona.

    My husband and I are excited to be in Waldport and look forward to meeting new people, learning about the area and setting up a permanent residence.  We have spent a lot of time in Oregon over the years and have grown very fond of the state.  We have grandkids in Portland and Sacramento and being here  allows us to be closer to them.  We love most outdoor activities biking, hiking, and fishing and are excited to learn crabbing.  I also enjoy the fiber arts such as sewing, quilting, knitting and crocheting. 

    Please stop by the library and introduce yourself.  One of my first assignments as Director is to provide more Adult Programming at the library so I would love to hear any suggestions you might have. 

    Sue Bennett
