When you visit the Bay County Public Library chances are you'll strike up a conversation with a lady who has been a part of the library for over 30 years.
Her name is Bettina Mead and you would be hard pressed to find a bigger fan of the library or a more enthusiastic promoter. Bettina is the Community Relations Coordinator. Her duties include setting up exhibits, heading up adult programs, special events and working with volunteers.
In her time spent here since the early 1980's, Ms. Mead says she has never considered her role as work and what she enjoys most is being able to enrich the lives of local citizens through the programs, exhibits and services at the Bay County Public Library.
