in January, 1977. She has been reappointed for a total of 10 three-year terms by all four succeeding
mayors. She served as chairman of the Commission for six years, 1978-1984, during which time the

she worked with Lee Brawner to encourage the development of the Friends of the Library and later

System. She has been a member of Finance Committee since 1984 and served as the chairman of a number
of special committees including the Executive Director Search Committee. She has served on the board
of the Oklahoma Library Association and was honored by the American Library Association for work

and for maintaining the role of the library as an independent and objective resource for information
in the community.
