Southwest Public Libraries Director Meredith E. Wickham

Meredith assumed the position of director of Southwest Public Libraries in February, moving to the Buckeye State from Hernando, Miss., where she oversaw operations for one of the largest public library systems in the state.

As a leader and member of state and national library associations, Meredith brings an extensive amount of experience and enthusiasm to Southwest Public Libraries and shares her excitement to be in Ohio, a state she describes as widely recognized as one of the best for libraries.

The Grove City Library began as a private club of reading enthusiasts in 1891, in a small room behind a Broadway drugstore. Now, 130 years later, Southwest Public Libraries consists of two full-service regional facilities, serving 127 square miles in Franklin and Pickaway counties.
