Librarian of the Month

October 2021 Librarian of the Month

Every month ByWater Solutions recognizes a librarian that has made an impact on their library and community. We are happy to announce the October 2021 Librarian of the Month is Dan Lerch, Systems Librarian at the Penticton Public Library in Canada.

Dan was nominated by members of the ByWater Solutions Team:

Our ByWater Team has been continually impressed with Dan. Our Data Team thought he was a huge help during the migration process, even writing up some documentation to help data extraction easier for other libraries in the Koha community. Our Education Team acknowledged that Dan really showed up eager and prepared to work; consistently anticipating issues and bringing great questions. He truly dove feet first into open source and two new softwares- no small undertaking! His commitment to his library, his co-workers, and his community are very evident."

Thank you, Dan, for all you do! And Congratulations!
