Delaware resident Julia Ward was recently promoted to executive secretary to the state librarian, the State Library of Ohio has announced.

Ward will manage the office of the state librarian and provide organizational support for special programs and projects.

Her library experience dates back to her high school and college years, working in the Norwalk Public Library, Bowling Green State University Firelands College Library, Ohio Wesleyan University’s library, and the Delaware County District Library.

“Julia’s work ethic, her strong commitment to customer service, and her knowledge of State Library programs and services and the Ohio library community, made her the ideal candidate for this position,” said State Librarian Beverly Cain. “I am looking forward to working with her in her new role.”

Ward lives in Delaware and holds a bachelor of arts in psychology from Ohio Wesleyan University.

She plans to attend Kent State University to pursue a master’s degree in library and information science.
