    Jefferson County Library Foundation Names New Board Members

    The Jefferson County Library Foundation announced it has named Bill Knott and Ann Stumpf to its Board of Directors, filling two of the four vacancies on the Board.

    “We are excited to welcome these new board members,” said Tami Schrader, president of the Library Foundation’s Board of Directors. “Mr. Knott brings considerable knowledge of libraries, specifically JCPL, to the table and we welcome the business expertise of Ms. Stumpf. They will be a valuable addition to the Foundation Board.”

    Knott served as county librarian of Jefferson County Public Library for 37 years before retiring in 2008. Under his leadership, JCPL became one of the fastest growing and widely used libraries in the country. Also under his direction, the Jefferson County Library Foundation became a key component within this library system. Knott continues to be a frequent library user and collector of books.

    For the last three years, Stumpf has held the position of vice president – operations at TIAA-CREF, a financial services organization serving the needs of those in higher education. Prior to TIAA-CREF, she held various financial and operational roles during her 13-year tenure at Qwest Communications (formerly U S WEST). Stumpf began her career in the audit practice of Coopers & Lybrand (now PriceWaterhouseCoopers), and she continues to hold an active CPA license in Colorado.

    Knott and Stumpf will each serve at least one three-year term on the Foundation Board.

    The Library Foundation is currently looking to fill its remaining two seats with individuals from the Lakewood, Wheat Ridge and North Arvada areas. If you are interested in serving on the Library Foundation Board, please contact 303-403-5075.
