Meet Our Director

Mary Harrison

I began my library career in 1984 as a 14-year-old page with the Kalamazoo Public Library. What started off as a fun way to earn extra spending money after school blossomed into a life-long dedication to library service. In the 37 following years, I have worked in different libraries and various capacities in both Georgia and Michigan. In 2019, I was delighted to return to Michigan and land in charming Coloma as the Director. It is my goal to nurture the same positive spirit of our town by keeping the library as a welcoming community center.

On a personal note, I enjoy running, Japanese anime and consider myself an adventurous foodie.
