Sue Williamson is the Director for Libraries for Arts Council England. A professional librarian, she has many years’ experience in a variety of roles in public libraries, her previous role being Head of Library Services for St. Helens Borough Council. A vocal and enthusiastic advocate for public libraries and the benefits and possibilities of their role at the heart of the community, Sue has seen at first hand the positive results of programming cultural and creative events and activities in Libraries.
Sue is relishing the opportunity to shape the role of Arts Council England as the Development Agency for Libraries, building and brokering partnerships at home and abroad. Sue loves all things cultural and is a voracious reader of popular fiction and is thankful on a daily basis that she is lucky enough to be paid to indulge her enthusiasms.
