Executive Team

Mary Ellen Icaza

CEO & Executive Director

Mary Ellen loves witnessing the positive outcome of the Library’s work in the community! Whether it’s seeing little ones jump up and down with the excitement of hearing a story, bringing books, educational help, and needed resources into homes throughout Stark County, connecting people who have been left behind by advancing technology, or seeing a spark spread through an audience listening to a new idea from a visiting author, it is impactful work! She joined Stark Library in 2018 as CEO and Executive Director, taking pride in leading her team’s careful stewardship of resources, while working to emphasize diversity, equity, and inclusion, so that all people are served and feel welcomed.

Mary Ellen is raising two kids with her husband, Javier, while being very active in our community. She is a graduate of the 35th class of Leadership Stark County, is a member of the Aultman Women’s Board, serves on the Board of Directors of the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce, and is also on the board of the Public Library Association.
