She then made her way back to Prince William, becoming the Branch Administrator for Chinn Park Regional Library.
“Deborah is a tremendous asset to our library system,” said Brian Murphy, Chairman of the Prince William Library Board of Trustees. “She has 24 years of management experience that she brings to the organization. We have also had the opportunity to observe her ability to facilitate staff improvements, and her skills in organizational planning are key to helping the library system continue to thrive in the community.”
“Libraries play such an important part of the quality of life in communities, and Prince William County, and the cities within our system, has one of the best library systems around,” said Wright. “I’m excited to serve this community at a remarkable library system, in this position, and to continue moving this system toward a vibrant, visible and valued part of the Prince William area.”
