On behalf of the Pennsylvania Integrated Library System board of directors, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Catherine Greenleaf Martin as our Executive Director.  Katie has been serving in the position as Interim Executive Director and her technology expertise, professionalism, and commitment to the SPARK community and libraries in Pennsylvania is unparalleled.  We are very excited and look forward to continuing working with Katie. Her official first day is January 5th, 2022, and you can reach her at kgm @

Katie grew up in Tioga County, and her first ‘home library was the Mansfield Free Public Library. She lives in Hollidaysburg, PA, with her spouse and son – they enjoy sailing on nearby Lake Glendale. For the last 6 years, Katie has worked with the libraries in Blair, Bedford & Huntingdon Counties, starting with managing their migrations to SPARK.

Please help us welcome Katie!
