Heidi (Kittleson) Schutt
Current Library Director of Muir Library in Winnebago, MN. 2011 MLIS graduate from the University of Washington Information School in Seattle, Washington.
I aspire to deliver, enlighten and advance excellent modern service and opportunities – through innovative ideas and programs – for the library’s ever-changing community of users by
* Embracing current technologies (ebooks, social media, mobile apps, etc.)
* Exploring the community’s needs through conversation and collaboration with organizations outside of the library (schools, businesses, churches, food shelves, day cares, senior citizen centers, etc.)
* Promoting the library’s mission with each service the library provides (programming for youth and adults, its collections, physical and virtual interactions, etc.) and
* Building better service and opportunities for the community through professional development in the field of library and information science.
