After 34 years of service, the Antioch Public Library District says goodbye to library director Kathryne LaBuda MALS ’75 and hello to newly hired library director Jennifer Drinka MLIS ‘05. Receptions were held for both in October and November as community wide open houses. LaBuda’s retirement will be official as she leaves her position this December having been only the fourth library director in the 96-year history of the Antioch library. 

In mid-September, the Antioch Public Library District’s Board of Trustees voted to appoint Drinka to the position of library director. Drinka took the helm of the Antioch Public Library District on October 24, and brings with her eighteen years of library experience from libraries, including: Crystal Lake Public Library, Barrington Area Library and Warren-Newport Public Library.
