La Mesa Library Branch Manager Heather Pisani-Kristl is moving on to newer pastures. Oct. 11 will be her last day in La Mesa before taking over the children’s resource librarian position at the newly-constructed San Diego County Library in Alpine.
Pisani-Kristl has served as branch manager of La Mesa since 2012. Some of the programs she started at the library that she is most fond of include the Saturday concerts, which she implemented with the help of La Mesa Friends of the Library, and The Human Library, where people gather to talk about difficult and controversial subjects in a respectful and meaningful way.
Pisani-Kristl said she will miss the active community involvement and the “curious minds” of the La Mesa patrons.
