After conducting a national search, the Arapahoe Library District Board of Trustees has gone in-house, promoting mid-level director Oliver Sanidas as the district’s executive director.
“I am honored to be executive director of Arapahoe Libraries, an organization that has served the community for more than 50 years,” Sanidas said. “Arapahoe Libraries will continue to provide valuable, life-changing resources, from programming and early childhood literacy to technology, all of which truly have the potential to make a difference in the communities we serve.”
Sanidas replaces Nicole Davies, who resigned earlier this year to take a similar position in Charleston, S.C.
The new executive director most recently served as Arapahoe’s director of digital and library material services. Before that, he was associate director of the department for eight years.
Sanidas was one of Library Journal’s 2015 Movers and Shakers and was awarded the 2015 John Iliff technology award by the American Library Association.
“The Board of Trustees is confident that Oliver’s wide range of experience, education and skills will positively contribute to the future of Arapahoe Libraries and libraries in general,” Board of Trustees President Katie Schroeder said.
