Terry Dawson, Appleton Public Library Director, to retire

Posted by on Tuesday, August 17, 2010 in Libraries in the News
Terry Dawson, director of Appleton Public Library since 1996, will retire in January 2011 after 32 years with the library. Terry, who was WLA President in 2005, has seen the library through tremendous change during his tenure. Recently, he's engaged the community in discussion about building a new library, a project that he leaves well positioned to progress under a new director.

Quoted in the Appleton Post-Crescent, Terry said, "I've had so many opportunities to work with good people on the library staff, the library board, the Friends of the Library. This is just a great place to work," Dawson, 62, said. "It's actually a hard place to leave even after 32 years."

Congratulations, Terry, and best wishes for an enjoyable retirement!
