Meet the Librarian

Hi my name is Kathy Smalley but the students call me Grandma Kathy.  

I am here to assist students and teachers with any of their information needs.

I previously worked for the Federal Government and retired after 39 years.  After my retirement I started volunteering in the library and in the classrooms here at Beadle Lake Elementary for the 2015-2016 school year.  When the librarian retired at the end of last year, I applied for the job and was selected.

I was born and raised here in Battle Creek, graduating from Battle Creek Central High School.

If you need to contact me, please feel free to choose any of the following options:

I look forward to hearing from you and working with the students and helping them develop their love for reading.

I absolutely love the staff and students of Beadle Lake Elementary they have made me feel very welcome, during my time last year volunteering and this year as the librarian.

Grandma Kathy
