South Milwaukee is looking for a new library director.
Nan Champe, who has served in the role since 2014, has accepted a position as the library director in Pewaukee, and I wish her nothing but the best. Her leadership during an important time of transition at the library was greatly appreciated.
From physical improvements (including an awesome new mural by a talented local artist) to stronger collection management to enhanced programming to internal operations, Nan drove an incredible amount of positive change for this vital community resource, and leaves the library in a really strong position for her replacement.

Thanks, Nan, for your service, and thanks to the South Milwaukee Library Board for your guidance during this important time, and going forward. This board is full of talented, passionate members who love libraries and this city — and I’m excited to see who they hire as Nan’s replacement.
Kathy Manning, previously in leadership roles at the Germantown and North Shore libraries, will serve as the interim director. Welcome, Kathy!
