Library announces new executive director
The Dayton Metro Library Board of Trustees announced the appointment of Jeffrey Trzeciak to the position of Executive Director. Trzeciak replaces Tim Kambitsch, who retires at the end of the February.
“The Board of Trustees was so fortunate to have three qualified finalists for the position of Executive Director,” said Elaine Johnson, President of the DML Board of Trustees and member of the Search Committee. “Jeff’s accomplishments and service have received national recognition. We are confident that he will continue Dayton Metro Library’s history of innovative Library leadership and ensure that our institution maintains a culture of trust and collaboration.”
Trzeciak is a native Daytonian who began his library career at the Dayton Metro Library while completing his undergraduate degree from the University of Dayton. He later pursued his MLS from Indiana University. Currently he is Director of the Jersey City Free Public Library in New Jersey. He has held senior positions at Newark Public Library, McMaster University (Ontario), and Washington University (St. Louis). Known for his commitment to diversity and social justice, he initiated the award-winning Documenting Ferguson project after the shooting of Michael Brown (2014) and, in 2017, received a City Citation for his commitment to the Newark Puerto Rican community. In 2018, Jeffrey received the Community Partner Award from Newark Pride for LGBTQ programming.
The new Executive Director will be only the 11th person to lead the Dayton Library since 1860. Trzeciak, who plans to start in early April, stated, “I want to thank Tim Kambitsch for his extraordinary tenure at the helm of this great institution. I’m ready to work with the leadership team, the staff and community partners to build upon Dayton Metro Library’s past successes.”
