Beth Gallaway is the Library Director at the Grafton MA Public Library. She has worked in public libraries for 15 years, working her way up from volunteer to library director. She has also worked as a library trainer and consultant to facilitate workshops for staff and patrons on teen behavior, technology, gaming, advocacy, book reviewing, and other topics. Beth is the author of Game On! Gaming at the Library (Neal Schuman 2007) and was named a Library Journal Mover & Shaker in 2006.
Primarily, Beth is interested in technology, advocacy and creating raving fans of libraries. These interests intersected in wanting to create a readable and eye-catching 2014 Annual Report that went beyond multiple pages of text. A fan of infographics featured in Wired and other magazines, she took her 2014 Annual Report to the next level, and envisions other town departments following suit in 2015.
