About the Library Director

Meet Sheryl McGovern, our library director.

Sheryl GroskurthHello,

Thanks for visiting the WPL website. I've been the library's director since April of 2006, and it is an honor to serve in this position. We combine a dedicated staff, a great location and building, and carefully chosen resources and programs to bring library services to the community.


I am a Waterloo native, and have been at the WPL since 1983. Everything has changed in that time, from the carpet and windows to the focus of the collection. It is a challenge to make sure that our library reflects the needs and wants of the community as a whole, so please contact me if you have ideas for us.
