Nice to Meet You
Janette Grice is the director of the Interlochen Public Library, a member library of the Traverse Area District Library. In December, she will celebrate her 10th anniversary with IPL.
Janette received her Master’s degree in Library Science from Western Michigan University in 1981 and last year marked her 30th year working as a professional librarian. During these years, Janette enjoyed working as a law librarian, federal court librarian and medical librarian. She says working in a public library has been the most rewarding of her library work.
An avid reader since she first learned to read, Janette has loved libraries since she was a young girl. She credits her mother, who is the librarian at the Almira Township Library in Lake Ann, for her decision to become a librarian.
Janette lives in Lake Ann and enjoys kayaking, swimming, riding bikes, snow shoeing and, of course, reading. Janette likes to make terrariums, “play” with miniatures and have fun with and read to her two grandsons, ages 7 and 8.
Janette, what are you reading?
"I just finished a great book, 'The Homecoming of Samuel Lake: a Novel' by Jenny Wingfield. Once I started reading this book, I could not put it down."
