Library director accepts new position

VALDOSTA — The South Georgia Regional Library Board of Trustees announced the resignation Thursday of Director Kelly Lenz.

Lenz has accepted the position as the director of the Middle Georgia Regional Library System. Since 2008, she has served in various positions with the South Georgia Regional Library.

Barry Barr, SGRL Board of Trustees chairman, said, “Under Kelly’s guidance, our local libraries have continued to grow providing a vital resource for our community.

The services a library provides in today’s world go well beyond just books such as after-school and summer programs.

“Also, the use of on-site computers with Internet access has continued to expand as patrons use library resources for job searches, research and social media.

“Kelly has introduced new programs, provided new and updated resources and has worked with our local and state leadership to promote our library system. We support her decision and we wish her the best.”  

Lenz said, “I will always look back on my time at the SGRL with affection, satisfaction and pride at my accomplishments.”

The South Georgia Regional Library System, based in Valdosta, is made up of six libraries located throughout Lowndes, Echols and Lanier counties.

Lenz will continue to work with the SGRL while an interim director is named.

She will begin her new position in Macon on Aug. 4.
