Tanya Prokrym has worked in both public and academic libraries over the last 12 years. Before joining the library world,  she was a database programmer and IT consultant.  Tanya considers herself fortunate to have merged her two loves, Libraries and IT, into one occupation and has applied her years of IT experience to the world of ILS systems, library technology, strategic planning, and project management.

Tanya joined the State Library of NC in 2012 as the NC Cardinal Data Specialist, moving up to NC Cardinal Program Manager.  She took over the Director position for Library Development in April 2016.  Tanya coordinates State Aid and State Aid grants and provides leadership for statewide programs that work in partnership with local communities and others to extend and develop public library service in the State.   She supervises Library Development staff who are responsible for LSTA grants, public library management, continuing education, youth services, e-resources, data analysis and communication, public librarian certification, Center for the Book, and NC Cardinal.
