Haslett Library Head Librarian Recognized at Township Board Meeting
MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - After 14 years of service to the community, Haslett Librarian Ann Chapman is retiring at the end of the month. The Haslett Library is a branch of the Capital Area District Libraries.
At the January 21st Meridian Township Board meeting, Supervisor Ronald J. Styka and the Board held a special recognition for Chapman and her accomplishments to the community and the library.
Some of her accomplishments included building relationships with organizations such as Okemos Kiwanis Club, launching the Student Success Initiative, which has provided 2,700 students easier access to CADL resources, and creating programs such as Let's Eat and the Senior Center Book Club.
In a farewell blog to the community Chapman wrote, "My last day as your Head Librarian is January 31. What a privilege it has been! We’ve accomplished so much together, Haslett. With your support, I’m leaving the library a better place than I found it in 2005.
Supervisor Styka also presented an honorary certificate and commemorated Chapman for all that she has done.
"We therefore resolve that the Charter Township of Meridian commemorates Ann Chapman in celebration of her many contributions to the community."
