The Director's Chair
ELPL is pleased to welcome Angelo Moreno into the role of Interim Library Director! Angelo has served as the Adult Services Librarian at ELPL for the last four years.
Angelo started his library career as a page at his childhood library, the Veterans Memorial Library of the Chippewa River District Library system in Mt. Pleasant. Concurrently, he worked at CMU's Clarke Historical Library, where he helped digitize historical newspapers from across the state. From there, he worked at Grand Rapids Public Library (GRPL), eventually serving as a branch manager. At GRPL, Moreno worked closely with Latinx staff to develop library services for the area Latinx and Spanish-speaking communities. Later, he spent roughly two years as a librarian in Puebla, Mexico. He returned to Michigan in 2019 and has worked at ELPL ever since. Angelo earned his MLIS through Wayne State University, eager to build a career helping to connect communities to books and other library resources.
