Comstock Park Rotary Members Meet new KDL Director

Members of the the Comstock Park Rotary Club were introduced to the new executive director of the Kent District Library today.  Werner took over this position earlier this year.  He came here from Lansing, MI where he served as chief executive officer and director of the Capital Area District Library.

Previously Werner served as the library law specialist at the Library of Michigan. He is a licensed attorney in the State of Michigan and received a master’s degree in library and information science.  A week ago last Monday, Lance made a presentation to the Alpine Township Board of Trustees. He is a great supporter of the Kent District Library and called it one of the best in the nation.  Last year, KDL was one of only two library systems in Michigan to be honored as a Star Library.  Werner welcomed new technology in delivering electronic books and other media to the public.  He encouraged Rotarians by saying that the best way to help the Kent District Library is by utilizing it.

Lance Werner is a member of the Grand Rapids Rotary Club.
