Coady Hatlen Volunteerism
Award given in 2007



A Coady Hatlen Memorial has been started at the Carlinville Library. In the 15 years Coady was here with us, he set the bar high on what it means to be a volunteer. The Carlinville Library Board met and discussed how best to honor and memorialize Coady Hatlen, who volunteered so many hours in the Library's Genealogy Room. They decided to set up a scholarship in Coady's name for an outstanding volunteer each year, someone beyond merely volunteering a few hours here and there, in short, someone like Coady.

Checks should be made payable to the Carlinville Public Library, with a notation on the "memo" (or subject) line to indicate Coady Hatlen Mem. or Hatlen Mem.

Glenn & Wanda Bober of Elk Grove Village, Illinois write:
My husband and I attended the Macoupin Co Genealogical Convention a couple years ago. While in the area we visited the Carlinville Library and met Coady in the Genealogy room. What a nice teenager. . In a short time he was chatting with us and helping in our research! He was an all around great kid! Anyone would be happy to have a son like him.
Upon leaving my husband asked him if there was an ice cream shop around and he said yes - my husband handed him some money and told him to take a friend out for ice cream and thanked him for helping us. We said goodbye and Coady, with a big smile on his face, shook our hands. He was a joy to meet.
