Lorna Rhyins

Congratulations to Lorna Rhyins, who is the newest Director of the New Milford Public Library (CT). Lorna most recently served as the Director of the Edith Wheeler Memorial Library and will begin her new position in June.

Lorna began her career in the Connecticut library community over 25 years ago as a Library Assistant in Bethel. Working at various times in Circulation, Reference, Interlibrary Loan, and Acquisitions, she discovered that no matter where she was in the library, she loved her job. She joined the Edith Wheeler Memorial Library as the Adult/Teen Services Librarian where she was responsible for supervising both departments. She boosted programming statistics by developing collaborative community relationships and launching summer reading challenges for adults and teens. Lorna’s professional affiliations include the Connecticut Library Consortium and the Connecticut Library Association. She is the current Treasurer of the Fairfield County Library Administrators Group.
