Katie Reineke, Board Member at Large '24
Co-Chair, Communications and Continuing Education Committees
For the past 10 years, I (she/her) have worked for the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library (EVPL). In 2013,
I joined EVPL as a circulation clerk and quickly realized that librarianship was where I wanted to spend the rest of my career. I have held various positions over the years, but discovered my true passion of being embedded in the community, helping solve complex challenges and connecting those to library services.
In 2021, I was given the opportunity to manage EVPL’s newly developed Outreach Department and prioritized our efforts in communities that experience barriers to traditional library service. Since the establishment of the Outreach Department, our services in the community have more than doubled and we are creating new and innovative ways
to serve hard-to-reach populations in our county.
I have served on the ABOS Continuing Education Committee during 2023, curating and coordinating virtual and
in-person opportunities for members to share their expertise and skills. I particularly enjoy facilitating Driven Discussions. It is my firm belief that ABOS has been a key factor in the success that EVPL's Outreach Department
has found over its first two years.
