Welcome To The Lower Merion Library System (LMLS)

LMLS Welcomes A New Director

Please join us in welcoming David L. Belanger to the Lower Merion Library System. He has been appointed as the Township’s new Director of Libraries beginning May 23. Mr. Belanger comes to us from Delaware County, where he was director of the federated system since 1992, and oversaw 26 member libraries. We are looking forward to working with Mr. Belanger and are excited to hear his ideas for the future of our Library System.
