Retirement party July 11 for librarian, youth coordinator

The public is invited to a retirement reception at the Detroit Lakes Public Library for retiring Library Associate Dorothy “Dotz” Johnson on Friday, July 11, from 3 to 5 p.m. There will be a short presentation at 3:30 p.m.

When asked what has been the favorite part of her work, Johnson could not pick just one thing.

“I love almost everything that I can do directly with kids: storytimes, crazy summer programs, teen programs, and helping kids select books.  I will miss the seeing the kids in the library setting.”

Johnson’s last day will be July 11 after 16 years of service to the Detroit Lakes community.
