Robert F. Lambert, president of York County Libraries, has been elected to serve on the Capital BlueCross Board of Directors.  As an independent, community-focused health plan, the board is comprised of individuals who represent a tradition of integrity, philanthropy and service to the community. 
 
“Robert Lambert is clearly an accomplished community leader with extensive experience in providing services to the community, particularly the younger members of the community,” says Capital BlueCross Board Chairman Kathryn P. Taylor.  “We are very much looking forward to the knowledge and experience that Robert will bring to the Capital BlueCross Board of Directors.”
 
Lambert joins the board with more than 25 years of experience building and driving revenue-generating operations for York County Libraries. He’s shifted the libraries’ perception from a “place to check out books” to an entrepreneurial organization that delivers quality services beyond expectation.  Over 50% of York County residents hold library cards and borrow more than 1.6 million items each year.
 
“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve on the Capital BlueCross Board of Directors,” says Lambert. “Capital BlueCross is a leader in transforming the healthcare experience for consumers and our communities.” 
 
In addition to his role as president of York County Libraries, Lambert is CEO of LibrariesFeed, a nonprofit organization connecting public libraries, donors, and corporations to fight child hunger.  He is also Founder of Sir Newton Traders, an education company that provides proprietary software, and market analysis to its members.
 
Lambert currently serves as an appointee to the Governor’s Advisory Council for Library Development, the York Traditions Bank Board of Directors, York Academy Regional Charter School Board of Trustees, and the York Symphony Orchestra Board of Directors.  Most recently, York College of Pennsylvania recognized Lambert as a recipient of the 2020 Spartans of the Year Award and the Alumni Board of Directors 2020 Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award. 
 
Lambert’s academic credentials include a Master in Public Administration (MPA) from The Pennsylvania State University, a Master of Science in Library and Information Service from the University of Pittsburgh, and a Bachelor of Arts in Speech Communications from York College of Pennsylvania. In addition, he graduated from Stanford University's Executive Education Program in Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
 
York County Libraries include 13 libraries that provide the latest in print and electronic information, best sellers, Wi-Fi, story times, book discussions and more.  They offer digital story times, over 80,000 digital library materials for loan, 80 electronic databases, and online book discussions.  All are available for free with a York County Libraries card. Community members without a card are invited to request one at yorklibraries.org at no cost.
