He said highlights from his included directing the grant-funded "Let's Talk About It" Civil War series, and coordinating the installation of self-check machines and the automated sorter.
He also said he's proud of forming and strengthening partnerships with other community organizations.But, Berkley is his home and provides a unique opportunity.
"I've lived in Berkley for the last five years and couldn't be happier," he said. "Serving the residents of my city is an honor and exciting opportunity."
Bais-DiSessa also said Matt was chosen with a focus on the library's future.
"I believe libraries will continue to be a repository for information in the electronic age. Mr. Church will play a vital role in helping Berkley make the transition”, she said.
