The Yolo County Board of Supervisors has appointed Diana Lopez as the new Yolo County librarian.

Lopez succeeds Mark Fink, who took a position in Colorado in October after five years in the position.

“My colleagues and I are delighted to have Diana Lopez join the Yolo County community as the Yolo County Librarian. Her experience and knowledge will undoubtedly have an impact within the community for years to come,” said Supervisor Oscar Villegas of West Sacramento.

Originally from the Pasadena area, Lopez has over 10 years of experience in public library management and over 20 years of serving people of varying needs from different socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds, ages and abilities, the county noted in a press release.

Lopez holds a Master of Library and Information Science degree from San Jose State University and a Bachelor of Arts in English from Cal Poly Pomona. She is passionate about eliminating equity, education, and opportunity barriers within the community, the county said.

“I am very excited with the selection made by our Board of Supervisors to have Diana Lopez serve as our next librarian. Her commitment to providing great customer service and her strong track record of collaborating extremely well with diverse communities will make our library system even stronger. With the support of our highly talented library staff, Diana will continue the Yolo County tradition of excellence and innovation,” said County Administrator Gerardo Pinedo.

Lopez will assume her new responsibilities on Jan. 30.
