Juliane Morian will become the next library director at the Rochester Hills Public Library
 
(ROCHESTER HILLS- October 15, 2019) The Rochester Hills Public Library (RHPL) Board of Trustees today announced that Juliane Morian, Associate Director/UX at the Clinton-Macomb Public Library (CMPL) since 2008, will succeed Christine Lind Hage as the library director at one of the counties busiest public libraries.
 
Ms. Morian’s eighteen-year career in public libraries began with a focus on technology at the CMPL. She has strong experience in staff supervision; budgeting, strategic planning and ensuring a positive customer service experience to all people using the library.
 
“Our national search brought us strong candidates that did excellent work in public libraries. Juliane’s demonstrated a track record of national leadership, visionary service, and smart use of technology made her a natural choice for RHPL,” said Board President Robert Bonam.
 
Ms. Morian has had several leadership roles in the American Library Association’s Public Library Association and in the Michigan Library Association.  Ms. Morian is a frequent presenter on library and technology issues at the national level. She received both her undergraduate degree in history, political science and American culture and her Master of Science degree in Information with a specialization in human-computer interaction from the University of Michigan.
 
She and her family lives in Rochester and she currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Dinosaur Hill Nature Preserve, is a member of the PTA at University Hills Elementary School and West Middle School and teaches catechism at St. John Fisher Chapel.
 
It has been a privilege to work in public libraries for the past eighteen years and play a pivotal role in expanding access and introducing new technology,” said Morian. “I’m honored that the Library Board is giving me the opportunity to advance the organization's positive momentum as its new leader. I look forward to working with the board, staff and community leaders in Rochester, Rochester Hills and Oakland Township to continue our legacy of excellence at the Rochester Hills Public Library.”
 
Library Director Christine Lind Hage will retire from RHPL effective December 1, 2019. Hage has had a 48-year career in public libraries with 31 of those years at RHPL. Under her leadership, the current library was built and expanded and usage has surpassed the 2 million-loan threshold.
