Director of Amherst County Public Libraries Retires

Steve Preston, Library Director of the Amherst County Public Library for the past 17 years, retired effective June 30, 2021. When a regional library system was proposed, Mr. Preston maintained the viability of the Amherst County Public Library as an independent library over the past few years.

Preston’s accomplishments include supervising switching the library’s online circulation system to Evergreen, a librarian-created and State Library-recommended circulation system. He also upgraded library technology, added an information technology position to the library staff, switched the internet connection to fiber optic, replaced all public and staff computers, and switched the telephone system to serve both ACPL libraries.
