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.
