WILLIAMSPORT, PA - May 2016 - Brodart Books & Library Services, the premier supplier of shelf-ready materials to libraries, is pleased to announce, effective April 18, 2016, Lauren K. Lee, M. Ln., has rejoined the Brodart sales team in the capacity of Senior Librarian. She will consult on all value-added services. Lauren's extensive experience with Brodart and libraries will also help her train, coach and mentor staff; keep in touch with key accounts; and assist with special divisional projects.

Lauren received her Master's degree in Librarianship from Emory University in 1977. She spent the first third of her career in libraries in Georgia. There, she served as Adult Services Librarian for the Cobb County Public Library System (Marietta GA), as Acquisitions Librarian for the Georgia Institute of Technology, and as Collection Management Administrator for the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System.

In 1990, Lauren was asked to establish the Collection Development department at Brodart. During her previous tenure, she served as collection development manager, project manager, selector, sales specialist, and Editor of the Elementary School Library Collection. She is proudest of being on the development team for TIPS (Title Information Preview Service).

She has been an ALA member since 1977. She is also a member of the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services, as well as the Public Library Association.
