I am very pleased to announce that we have hired a very well-qualified person as PALS’ new Administrative Assistant; Amanda Eekhoff began working with PALS in July 2015. Her position here replaces long-time Administrative Assistant, Trudy Bement, who, as you may know, retired earlier this year.
Mrs. Eekhoff has a very strong background in clerical and accounting.

Susan came to PALS in 2002 from Traverse des Sioux Library Cooperative. She began by supporting MnLink, VDX and Interlibrary Loan and later Aleph Circulation and patron issues.
