Savannah Kitchens MLIS ’11 is the new library director for the Chilton-Clanton Public Library in Alabama.

"I've always wanted to be a library director — that has always been the goal … and I'm really passionate about library services for our rural communities," Savannah said.

Savannah has worked in libraries since 2009. Most recently, she was the children's services manager at the North Shelby Library.

Savannah said Dominican University appealed to her because it was an hour away from Chicago and an opportunity to experience a new place.

"Grad school is a great opportunity to see more of the world," Savannah said. "I got to experience really top-of-their-industry professors, which was wonderful. I got so many opportunities."
