It's supposed to be over 100 degrees today-- yikes! If you need a cool (in so many ways) place to hang out, come to the library. The A/C is kicked up and it's definitely a nice reprieve from the blistering weather we've been having these past weeks.

On January 18th the East Lansing Public Library will welcome Kristin Shelley, ELPL's new Director, to East Lansing. Ms. Shelley was most recently the Deputy Director of the Worthington Libraries, located in Worthington, Ohio. The Friends of the East Lansing Public Library will be hosting a welcome reception for Ms. Shelley Friday, January 28th, from 4-6pm in the Library's meeting room.
Listen to Kristin's interview with Scott Pohl from WKAR!
Following a nationwide search, Shelley was selected from a pool of more than 25 applicants to serve as the new ELPL director. A search committee made up of community stakeholders, East Lansing City Councilmembers and members of the East Lansing Public Library Board of Trustees conducted interviews and came to a unanimous consensus earlier this fall. Shelley’s start date is January 18, 2011.
