Wautoma Common Council approves Hannah Klusmeyer as new librarian

The Wautoma Common Council approved the hiring of Hannah Klusmeyer as the executive director of the Wautoma Public Library during their regular meeting on Oct. 19. 

Klusmeyer started working at the Wautoma Public Library in October of 2014 and had previously volunteered at the library for two months prior to being hired. Klusmeyer was raised in Wautoma, attended high school at Winnebago Lutheran Academy in Fond du Lac and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point where she obtained her degree in international and religious studies. Following college graduation, she spent time in Hubei Province in Wuhan, China, where she taught English as a second language to first and second graders

“She’ll  be a great lib-rarian,” City Administrator/Clerk/Treasurer Tommy Boh-ler said. “She led successful youth and teen programs at the library. Our library is a very important resource for our citizens.”

Bohler also reviewed the city’s proposed 2018 budget with the council, stating it is proposed and changes can be made. He gave council members a chart extending to fiscal year 2022, indicating which expenditures may be proposed during those years, and said “some of this is a ‘wish list,’ stating it shows what may be coming in the future.” The council approved a 2018 budget hearing for Monday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m., followed by the regular November council meeting.
