A host of supporters and patrons showed up to welcome Stonecrest Library’s newest branch manager, Michael Strong, on Jan. 6 at a meet-and-greet reception held at the library.

“It was truly an overwhelmingly awesome experience being welcomed into the Stonecrest family. I am looking forward to getting to know the people of Stonecrest and building new relationships,” said Strong.

Strong, a Decatur native, has been with the DeKalb County Library system for more than 30 years. He will succeed Lylah Lockridge.

“We’re looking forward to having him on board. I believe that he will be instrumental in working with the Friends group to provide more programming, especially for children, by securing more grants for the Stonecrest library branch,” said Louise Ellen Alexander, vice president of the Stonecrest Library Friends group.

Strong has served as manager of DeKalb’s Covington branch for the past two years and said that he is looking forward to his new assignment.

“Proverbs 18:16 says ‘A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men.’ My gift has brought me before the great people of Stonecrest and together we will do great things as a community,” Strong said.

Amanda Lindsay will continue to serve as the acting manager until Strong begins his role as the new branch manager in the coming weeks.
