Trustees of Haddenham Community Library are delighted to announce that Debbie Hekkink has been appointed as manager to succeed Ali Gilbert following Ali's geographical relocation.
Debbie will start in Haddenham on Tuesday 8th October, following induction to the county library service.
She was unanimously chosen by a panel from BCC and the library trustees from nine applicants, four if whom were interviewed.
Debbie lives in Wendover, where she has been a school governor and parish administrator. She is a qualified teacher, having taught in Bristol, Germany and the Netherlands. More recently she has been a mental health practitioner with Barnardo's and High Wycombe Children's Centre.
Steve Sharp, Chair of the Haddenham Community Library trustees, said 'I am delighted to announce Debbie's appointment. She will bring the fruits of her varied experience and has a real enthusiasm for working with the community, especially young people, and volunteers. She remembers the thrill as a child of receiving her first library card. She tells me that this is her 'dream job'.
