Nathan Deprey has been named the new director of the Beloit Public Library.

Deprey replaces former library director Kristi How, who resigned Jan. 25 to take the library director position at the Vigo County Public Library In Terre Haute, Ind.

Deprey most recently served as director of the Osceola Public Library in Osceola, Wis. While there, he was able to increase circulation and program attendance, develop early literacy programs and help guide the Friends of the Library group through a 501(c)3 certification. He also developed and managed library outreach efforts, organized a home energy expo and developed a library expansion plan with the library board.

Deprey is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay, earning a bachelor’s degree in English-creative writing. He earned a masters of library and information sciences degree from the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee.

“Nathan Deprey will be a fantastic addition to our library, bringing energy, creativity and passion for the profession,” said Library Board President Doreen Dalman.

The selection of Deprey concludes a three-month search conducted in collaboration with Lynn Elam Consulting of Batavia, Ill.

Howe had been the library’s director starting in August of 2010. Prior to her, Dan Zack served as library director during the period when the library was settling into the Eclipse Center.

The Beloit Public Library offers services to the people of Beloit, as well as surrounding townships.
