Meet our New Director,

Addie Ciannella!

It is an honor to have been hired as the director of the William Jeanes Memorial Library and Nicholas and Athena Karabots Center for Learning. I look forward to getting to know and work with the community. So far, it I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know and work with the staff, the Board of Directors, the Friends of the Library, the Township Supervisors and some of the Township employees.
My husband (Peter), three children (Rachel, Sophia and Aidan) and I have lived in Media, PA for 24 years. I am originally from Long Island, went to college in New England and moved to Raleigh, NC where Peter was in graduate school.
Prior to obtaining my MLS from Drexel University, I received my BA degree in psychology and fine arts. I worked as a clinical social worker until we moved to PA. We had two children in tow (Aidan was born in PA) and faced sticker shock after living in the South. So, I took a part-time position as a library assistant and fell in love with the profession.
I moved from working as a library assistant at the Middletown Free Library to becoming a children’s librarian at Lansdowne Public Library and then onto the director’s position. After Lansdowne, I became the director at Haverford Township Free Library. All three are in Delaware County.
Aside from my work in libraries, I greatly enjoy traveling, camping and hiking, gardening, working in my studio, laughing with my family, movies and music and, needless to say, reading and listening to books.
PLEASE, stop by and introduce yourself. I want to hear from all in the community. The William Jeanes Memorial Library and Nicholas and Athena Karabots Center for Learning is YOUR library and I want to make certain that it grows and thrives for years to come.
