Beginning February 1st, Beth Riley will serve as the new executive director for the Omaha Public Library Foundation (OPLF).

 


  

Prior to joining OPLF, Riley directed the legacy giving program at Child Saving Institute, where she was responsible for developing relationships with the agency’s supporters. She graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a degree in nonprofit administration and is completing coursework toward her master’s in philanthropy and development from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota.



Riley is involved in several community organizations, including Literacy Center of the Midlands and Junior League of Omaha. She also belongs to professional groups, such as the local chapter of American Association of Grantwriting Professionals, Nebraska Partnership for Philanthropic Planning and Association of Fundraising Professionals. In 2007, she was selected by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation as a Next Generation Nonprofit Leader. Riley will be recognized as one of the 10 Outstanding Young Omahans by the Omaha Jaycees on Jan. 26 at the Qwest Center. 



“I’m thrilled to become a part of an organization I have long admired and who serves such a vital role in our community. There’s never been a more important time to bring access to information and technology to youth, adults and seniors through Omaha Public Library,” said Riley. “I look forward to building the private support to continue to move our public library system forward.”
