The Indianapolis Public Library (IndyPL) is pleased to announce that Marianne McKenzie has been appointed Strategic Planning and Assessment Officer.
McKenzie will work closely with the CEO and senior leadership to steward the execution of the strategic plan via workable, practical, and sustainable processes. She will collect, synthesize, and analyze system data to advise Library staff of strategic performance trends, gaps, and successes, and recommend changes or realignments.
“Our strategic plan doesn’t just impact Library staff, it impacts the people that The Library serves throughout Indianapolis,” said McKenzie. “Our strategic priorities of digital and technology inclusion, education, reading and writing, health and wellness, and financial literacy can uplift our city, and I am looking forward to applying my skills and experiences in new ways as I take on this role.”
McKenzie has served The Indianapolis Public Library for more than eight years, initially joining IndyPL’s staff as a computer lab assistant in 2015. Most recently, she has served as the supervisor of digital inclusion, where she managed the lending of 420 hotspots and Chromebooks, spearheaded the implementation of Northstar Digital Literacy, and led the Digital Inclusion Committee in developing the Digital Inclusion Roadmap.
“Throughout her career, McKenzie has consistently demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the mission and core values of The Indianapolis Public Library,” said Gregory Hill, CEO of The Indianapolis Public Library. “McKenzie’s analytical and forecasting skills will be an important addition to our Executive Committee. Her creativity, innovation, and attention to detail have not gone unnoticed, and we are excited to see her take on this significant role.”
