Don Farmer Appointed Chair of the Tennessee Advisory Council on Libraries
Don Farmer of Milan was appointed chair of the Tennessee Advisory Council on Libraries (TACL) earlier this month at a meeting held at the Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA).
TACL is an organization that provides advice to the TSLA on the development of the long range programs for library services in Tennessee and assists TSLA in evaluating library programs, services and activities.
The Council combines professional librarians and library users to represent a variety of perspectives. Farmer represents public library users in West Tennessee. He also serves on the Reelfoot Regional Library Board of Trustees.
“As chairman of the Tennessee Advisory Council on Libraries, Don Farmer will be providing essential leadership to ensure that our state’s libraries meet the challenges of both the present and the future,” Secretary of State Tre Hargett said. “No matter how well equipped our libraries may be, they cannot provide the best service to Tennesseans unless they are managed properly. I am confident Don and the other members of TACL will provide input and guidance Tennessee’s libraries deserve.”
“I’m sure Don will do an excellent job in his new role as chairman of TACL,” State Librarian and Archivist Chuck Sherrill said. “Libraries are going through a transitional period in which strong leadership will be especially important. I expect Don’s term as chairman to be an extremely productive one.”
