of the Punta Gorda Library

Welcome Brian Smith

The Friends of the Punta Gorda Library welcome our  new Punta Gorda Librarian, Brian Smith.


Brain Smith

Brian Smith is the new Library Supervisor at the Punta Gorda Library.  He most recently came to us from the Palm Beach County Library System.  He has also worked at the Delray Beach Public Library, the Naples Regional Library and the Wayne State University's David Adamany Undergraduate Library.  This diverse background will be valuable here in Charlotte County as he plans programs and activities.

Brian wants everyone to feel welcome at the library.  He wants to provide programs that are unique and meets the needs of our population.  Community engagement is important to him, because this is how a library grows and improves. 

Brian prefers to read non-fiction, with a special interest in sociology and technology.  He keeps up to date on the technology available for public libraries by writing articles for the Public Library Association under the heading: New Product News. 

The Friends are pleased to welcome Brian and look forward to working with him.
