Scheduled Guests

Heidi M. Daniel Library Director

An innovative leader and professional librarian with 11 years of experience working with and managing multiple library locations and system-wide projects, Ms. Daniel is highly qualified to take on the duties of the Director of PLYMC. She has worked at Houston Public Library since 2005 and in her current position she oversees management of 16 neighborhood libraries and has a hand in developing the vision and direction of Houston PL’s Public Services Division. She has a history of being progressively given more responsibility in her years at Houston, starting as Assistant Manager and Juvenile Librarian, moving on to Teen Services Coordinator, then Head of Programming and Youth Services, before being promoted to her current position. Prior to joining the Houston Public Library, she was Teen Services Coordinator in the Oklahoma City, OK, Metropolitan Library System. Ms. Daniel holds a Master of Arts in Library Studies from Texas Woman’s University, Denton, TX, and a Bachelor of Arts, Women’s Studies, DePaul University, Chicago, IL. Among her honors, she has been recognized by the Texas Accelerated Library Leadership (TALL Texans) Institute in 2007, and the Beta Phi Mu Honor Society in spring of 2006. She has also been active in the American Library Association, including serving on the Association for Library Services to Children’s 2008 Theodore Seuss Geisel Award committee. Asked what would be her first priority when she begins her new job as Library Director, Ms. Daniel said, “My first priority is getting to know the library and the community: its people, its issues, its strengths and areas of improvement. I want to learn what’s taking place in Youngstown and Mahoning County. I want to know what the residents are like and what their dreams, needs and wants are. I want to explore the library system and I look forward to getting to know the library’s staff.” Ms. Daniel says, “I have a variety of experience working with a large library system and am eager to bring new ideas and innovations to Youngstown.” Blending work and service with her personal life, Ms. Daniel is a devoted mother to two young children, as well as being an active community member. “I believe an organization goes from good to great when it has vision based on the community it serves, when it implements the vision in innovative ways and when the staff clearly understands and joins in those organizational visions, goals and strategic plans,” she says.

PETA Asia's exposé of angora farms in China – where rabbits have the fur violently ripped out of their skin – has led retailers, including ASOS, H&M, Calvin Klein, Ted Baker

  French Connection  , All Saints, Tommy Hilfiger and many more, to drop this cruel product in droves – you'd be hard-pressed to find a single shop on the High Street still offering angora. In the past month alone, we've added Lacoste and Monsoon to the list.

 FRANK WARREN started PostSecret as a community art project where he invited total strangers to anonymously mail in their secrets on a homemade postcard. This simple act sparked a global phenomenon. Frank has received over 1 million secrets in his mailbox with more arriving every day but Sunday. PostSecret.com has won seven Webby Awards and is the most visited advertisement-free blog in the world. The postcards have been curated for five New York Times bestselling books and have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art and the American Visionary Art Museum. Frank has traveled the world sharing secrets and stories from Australia to the White house. There is a PostSecret album, a PostSecret TED Talk and a PostSecret Play on tour. In 2011 Frank was awarded the ‘HopeLine Lifetime Achievement Award’ for his work on suicide prevention and was invited to the White House to work on issues of mental wellness. Frank lives in Germantown, Maryland, with his wife and daughter.

Mill Valley, California (November 19, 2019) - Food Empowerment Project Founder and Executive Director lauren Ornelas was arrested by Whole Foods Market on November 16, 2014, for handing out educational pamphlets in front of Whole Foods Market (WFM) in Sebastopol, California. The store manager had complained to police, and when the officer did not make the arrest, the manager chose to make a citizen’s arrest.  

Ms. Ornelas was a participant in a peaceful, legal protest by longtime Whole Foods Market shoppers and animal advocates as part of a national boycott asking WFM to stop the sale of domestic bunny meat—a new item recently added to the WFM meat case.  

Ms. Ornelas, who runs a vegan food justice non-profit and has been vegan for over 26 years, said after her arrest, “The Whole Foods Market manager had me arrested because they don't want their customers to know about their bunny ‘meat.’ WFM does not need to be responsible for the deaths of even more animals.” Margo DeMello, President of House Rabbit Society, adds, “Whole Foods Market has consistently hidden behind their wholly inadequate ‘humane standards’ and unsubstantiated claims of customer demands when rolling out their new bunny meat program. They have also chosen to source their rabbits from Iowa—an Ag-Gag state that does not allow outside verifications of conditions and standards. Whole Foods is attempting to create a demand for bunny meat and is not being transparent about how these animals lived and died.”  

The Rabbit Advocacy Network, an international coalition of organizations, animal lovers, and activists led by Mill Valley's SaveABunny and Richmond's House Rabbit Society, has been protesting WFM’s June 2014 decision to begin selling bunny meat—the country's third most beloved furry companion animal. In response, WFM has replied with form letters promoting their humane standards, has blocked social media users from posting comments about bunny meat, and has deleted negative customer feedback on WFM’s Facebook pages.  

Marcy Berman-Schaaf, the Founder and Executive Director of SaveABunny, Inc, a San Francisco Bay area-based nonprofit rabbit rescue and adoption center, says, “New Zealand white rabbits are a gentle, loving, docile breed often referred to as the ‘golden retrievers’ of bunnies. They are as intelligent and sensitive as cats and dogs, can use a litter box like a cat, and live with millions of Americans as beloved family members. We expected better community values from Whole Foods Market.”  

Ms. Ornelas’ leafleting activity in front of the store was legal, in accordance with the Supreme Court ruling Pruneyard Shopping Center v. Robins (1980), which established that, in California, private shopping centers become de facto public space when it comes to the exercise of an individual’s free speech rights, and California Supreme Court ruling Ralphs Grocery Company v. United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 8 (2012), which narrowed Pruneyard to those areas which are designed to encourage shoppers to congregate and relax, like the Sebastopol Whole Foods Market’s outdoor seating area.  

Arresting a peaceful protester who was exercising her constitutionally protected free speech rights reinforces the fact that Whole Foods Market has something serious to hide in their rabbit meat program.
