Tiffany Bartlett (MLIS’09) has recently begun a new role as the CEO of Truro Library. She obtained her Masters in Information and Library Studies degree from Dal’s Faculty of Management in 2009.

TRURO, N.S. – When Tiffany Bartlett first saw the library in Truro she was impressed, to say the least.

So being hired as CEO of the Colchester-East Hants Public Library system came as quite a thrill.

“When I saw the job posting I visited the area, and when I saw the library it was love at first sight,” she said. “I was impressed with the downtown core. This is the kind of dream job I’d been working toward.”

Bartlett grew up in St. Andrews, N.B., borrowing books from nearby libraries. It wasn’t until she worked as a student assistant at Mount Allison University’s library that she decided a career in the field would suit her. She went on to get her Masters in Information and Library Studies from Dalhousie University.

The next few years, she worked with the New Brunswick Public Library Service as a reference librarian and technical services librarian, and served as director of the Kennebecasis library, acting assistant regional director for the Fundy Region and head of adult services.

She took over her new position with the Colchester-East Hants libraries on Feb. 5 and has been busy, becoming accustomed to her new home in Truro and learning about the branches and communities.
