Janeene Klein – Remsen Chamber’s “Citizen of the Year”


(Remsen) — The Remsen Public Library was honored in many ways during the Remsen Chamber of Commerce annual awards banquet held Saturday evening. The Remsen Public Library was named as the Remsen “Business of the Year”. Library Director
Janeene Klein says you wouldn’t normally think of a public library as a business, but she informed the gathering that the Remsen Public Library serves as many different types of businesses.

The Remsen Public Library is celebrating it 50th Anniversary of being in its current location.

Klein says there are many people that utilize the library’s services when conducting genealogy research. Following the presentation of the Remsen “Business of the Year Award”, Klein was surprised when she was named as the
Remsen “Citizen of the Year”. Many of Klein’s family members returned home to Remsen to help Janeene celebrate the honor.

Klein assumed the duties of being the Director of the Remsen Public Library following the resignation of the previous director in 2014, but her involvement with the Remsen Public Library dates back further than that.

Klein says she enjoys every aspect of her job, but especially enjoys assisting the small children.
