Tina Hubert (MS '88), director of the Six Mile Regional Library District located in Granite City, Illinois, is the 2016 recipient of the Illinois Library Association Librarian of the Year Award. The award recognizes a librarian's distinguished service and leadership in Illinois libraries. The award is sponsored by Sikich.
Hubert has worked in libraries for over twenty years. In 2010, she became director of the Six Mile Regional Library District (SMRLD). During her short tenure, she has managed a $4.1 million renovation, spearheaded a succession referendum campaign, and positioned the library as an integral part of the community’s revitalization plan.
Throughout her career, and regardless of her role, Hubert has strived to create services that strengthen the community. Currently, she serves on several county and city boards within her district, not only as a library advocate but also as a conduit for change and collaboration.
