Dana Juriew named new director of growing Spring Hill Public Library

Dana Juriew named library director

The City of Spring Hill is proud to announce the Spring Hill Public Library Board of Trustees’ selection of Assistant Library Director Dana Juriew to serve as the new director of our popular, growing library.

Mrs. Juriew was hired in August 2016 as Assistant Library Director and has been serving as interim director for the past three months since former Library Director Hulen Bivins accepted a position as executive director of the Mississippi Library Commission.

Mrs. Juriew, with 23 years of professional library experience, has served in a wide range of library positions in both Michigan and Tennessee. She holds a Master of Information and Library Studies Degree from the University of Michigan, and a Library Media Specialist Endorsement Teaching Certificate from Middle Tennessee State University.

“We are so excited that Dana has accepted the position of Library Director,” said Library Trustee Linda Harrison. “We are thrilled on several levels — thrilled for us to have such a qualified librarian in this position of leadership, thrilled for the families of Spring Hill to have such an experienced and delightful person to oversee the dynamics of this extraordinary library of ours, and thrilled for the library staff who get to continue working with her every day. How lucky for us all!”

Mrs. Juriew’s promotion to director comes at a high point for the library, poised to expand from its existing 17,000 square feet to about 50,000 square feet of new space in the Northfield Conference Center building purchased last year by the City. The renovations will be designed this year and construction is expected to begin in 2019.

 The library offers an expansive array of materials for checkout, including Wi-Fi hotspots, along with a host of exciting programs for babies, children, teens, adults and seniors. The popularity of these materials and programs has certainly been reflected in library usage: In 2017, the library boasted 147,486 visitors, 1,039 of whom attended programs. About 8,000 patrons checked out over 319,000 items. In addition to the collection and programming, the library offers 15 public computers, 15 laptops and Kindles ready to be used in comfortable seating areas.
