During the past two and a half years, the California State Library and North Bay Cooperative Library System have had the privilege of working with Judy Klikun, first as Coordinator for the Reach Out and Read and public library collaborative grants then as statewide Project Coordinator for the Early Learning with Families (ELF) @ Your Library initiative. Judy has brought years of experience and expertise to these endeavors. She was instrumental in helping to craft the vision and steward the implementation of the ELF initiative, bringing extensive knowledge, great heart and contagious enthusiasm to this work, helping public libraries to achieve the most effective and rewarding outcomes for the young children and families they serve.
Judy has accepted a new position as Manager, Partners in Reading for San Jose Public Library and will be leaving her role with ELF effective September 5, 2008. We will miss Judy and her "energizer bunny" energy in the ELF initiative, but we wish her all the best in her new endeavor and are delighted to know that she will continue to be a part of the California public library community.
Please join us in wishing Judy all the best.
