New Director Hired for South Fayette Township & Bridgeville Libraries Cheryl Napsha is set to become director of the South Fayette Township Library and Bridgeville Public Library on November 17. Ms. Napsha has 24 years of experience as a public library director, including at the Bethel Park Library, the Adams Memorial Library in Latrobe, and libraries in Ohio, Michigan, and Massachusetts. Originally from Nevelle Island, she holds a Master of Library Science from the University of Pittsburgh and a Bachelor of Arts in English literature from Seton Hill University in Greensburg. Ms. Napsha created the nation’s first full-service library branch inside a supermarket in Latrobe, and she developed the world’s first library-operated, curated digital publishing company for art and literature in Provincetown, Massachusetts. “My greatest strength is in my ability to develop strong, dedicated staff with the enthusiasm and confidence to provide excellent customer service,” Ms. Napsha wrote in her application letter. “i’m a great believer in team building.” The seven-year member South Fayette library board chose Ms. Napsha from about 20 applicants, with input from the Bridgeville library board and South Fayette Township staff. Bob Milacci, president of the South Fayette library board, said Ms. Napsha stood out due to her diverse experience, strategic vision and fundraising capabilities. “We found a lot of qualities in one person,” Mr. Milacci said. Ms. Napsha replaces Rebecca Long, who departed in August for a position with the Erie County Public Library.
