Sad News

January 30th, 2009

Last night I received the very sad news about the untimely deaths of Kate McClelland and Kathy Krasniewicz in a hit-and-run automobile accident on their way to the Denver airport from ALA.

Both librarians at the Perrot Memorial Library in Old Greenwich, Connecticut, Kate was also vice-president/president-elect of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), and Kathy was Notable Children’s Videos Chair.

This is a terrible loss for everyone, and my thoughts are with their families and loved ones today. Their love of books, reading, and storytelling are already being vitally missed.

More later.

Much love,

Meg
