The Martin County Library System is proud to announce the selection of Justin de la Cruz for the position of Blake Library Manager. Justin has been promoted to Library Manager from his position as the Digital Literacy Librarian at the Peter & Julie Cummings Library, where he has been working for the past year.

In that short time, Justin has developed and implemented popular computer classes and helped hundreds of library members turn their digital ideas into reality. As a Manager at the Blake library and a member of the Library System’s Public Services Management Team, he will be able to design and implement similar excellent services on a much larger scale and at multiple locations.

Justin received an MLIS and an MA in Interdisciplinary Humanities from Florida State University, where he spent his final year abroad, as the Library Supervisor for FSU’s academic library in Florence, Italy. He brings over six years of administrative and library work experience, and even speaks conversational Italian.
