Lipsky Named As Pottstown Library Interim Director

POTTSTOWN PA – Mindy Lee M. Lipsky, an Upper Pottsgrove Township resident and employee of the Pottstown Regional Public Library, 500 E. High St., in a variety of positions since October 2018 has been appointed as its interim executive director, library Board of Directors’ President Frances Hylton announced Saturday (Dec. 18, 2021).

Lipsky joined the library staff as a part-time library youth services assistant and the leader of its makerspace, according to her Linked-In profile. In that position she helped with its science, technology, engineering, and mathematics program, and taught technology classes for youths ages 8-18. She was named as the library’s full-time youth services coordinator in December 2020.

She is a graduate of both Emmaus High School and Shippensburg University, the latter with a bachelor of arts degree in psychology and minors in coaching and biology. She currently attends Clarion University to obtain her master’s degree in library and information sciences.

Lipsky also is certified personal and professional life coach, an entrepreneur who in 2016 established Pottstown’s first shared co-working space, and a former financial officer. She also is a licensed notary public.

Hylton encouraged library patrons, as well as members of Pottstown Borough Council, and commissioners of Lower, Upper, and West Pottsgrove Townships – whose municipalities are annually asked to contribute to library operating revenues – to “stop by the library” and make Lipsky “feel welcome.”
