Library names new director

LOCKPORT — Beverly Federspiel,  Director of the City of Tonawanda Public Library, has been appointed as the new Director of the Lockport Public Library.

Federspiel, 49, will succeed Marie Binderman, who is retiring, on Feb. 28.

“I’m excited,” said Federspiel, who has been at the Tonawanda Library three years after serving at the Buffalo and Erie County Central Library for 18 years. “I’ve always loved the Lockport building and the community is very supportive. There are lots of opportunities out there.”

 Federspiel, who lives in Lewiston, served as Department Manager for the Children’s Department and the Processing Department at the Buffalo Library. She received her Master of Library Science degree in 1992 from the University at Buffalo.

With the budget crisis in Erie County, there was talk of hours going to be cut in Tonawanda. That issue has been resolved.

“Beverly Federspiel has the personal and professional qualifications we feel are necessary to move the library into the future,” said Nancy Kasprzak-Whitmore, the president of the Library’s Board of Trustees. “Her experience and vision will ensure that the Library’s tradition of providing high-quality service to the community is sustained. The trustees and staff look forward to working with her.”

 Federspiel will meet with the board next week.

“The Lockport Public Library has a long tradition of excellent service and I am excited to become a part of that tradition”, Federspiel said. “Working with the staff, I hope to build on established partnerships and also explore new opportunities. I look forward to becoming a part of the Lockport Community.”
