Something remarkable happened at the Sept. 21 board meeting of the Orland Park Public Library. For the first time ever, I felt the OPPL understood the importance of listening to the public. One Trustee in particular, Joanna Leafblad, must be celebrated for the leadership she showed that night.
The addition of Leafblad to the Board this May has brought about a sea change where Diane Jennings and Denis Ryan are now the exceptions and not the rule. Board President Nancy Wendt Healy now follows Leafblad’s lead and sides with the public’s concerns.
