Bartlett resident Felicia Knox, former public, research and technology services librarian at Rhodes, was named the new director of the Bartlett Public Library as the suburban branch prepares its split from the Memphis system.

Dana Braccia, chief librarian and director of client services with Avenu Insights & Analytics, made the announcement near the end of a recent Bartlett Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting. The Tuesday, June 25, meeting also featured an announcement of a new emergency warning system for the city’s residents.

Knox joins the library located at 5884 Stage Road just as the city is set to officially take over direction of the facility Monday, July 1.
