February 8, 2017 the Greenup Library Board promoted Sharon Haines to Executive Director.
Mrs. Haines has served as Interim Director since January 1, 2014 when Dorothy Griffith stepped down. Sharon began her career with the GCPL in 1969.
Since taking over Sharon has made many positive changes in the library system.
She has been instrumental in starting several new programs, obtaining health insurance for the employees and completion of a long range plan for all three libraries and the bookmobile.
She hopes this contingency will eventually have all three libraries and the bookmobile working toward a more cohesive unit.
Sharon has always been an instrumental part in the Greenup County Public Library System, especially at the Flatwoods Branch.
She began her career in a stationary Bookmobile in 1969 is a spot adjacent to Scott Drugs until rental space became available in that building.
They then moved into the Scott Drug building in 1970. Because the community responded so well to the library, a new building was constructed at the present location in 1975.
As the times changed to a more digital age and more of a need for the public library the decision was made that the Flatwoods Branch needed to expand.
So in 2002 renovations were made to the current size of the building.
Starting in 2014 to present day there have been ongoing renovations to make the library more user-friendly and efficient.
Sharon is also overseeing the renovations at the McKell Branch.
All of this would not be possible without full support of a forward thinking Board of Directors. Sharon is married to Roger Haines. She has two daughters, Michelle Sloas and Sarah Armstrong.
Sharon also has a grandson, Cameron Armstrong and a step-grandson, Daniel Armstrong.
Those that know Sharon know that she loves her CATS and REDS. Come on in to the library and congratulate Sharon on this wonderful honor and thank her for her 40+ years of service.
