As many YALSA blog readers have probably learned, two Division members died unexpectedly on their way to the airport following Midwinter in Denver. ALSC Vice President Kate McClelland and Notable Children’s Videos Chair Kathy Krasniewicz were killed in a hit-and-run automobile accident.

YALSA sends its condolences to the families, friends, and colleagues of these two women.

The ALSC blog is collecting memories of Kate and Kathy, readers of this blog are invited to contribute.

You can read about the women in this article from the Greenwich News.

2 Thoughts on “Sad News

  1. I was thinking of sending a donation to the Perrot Memorial Library, in honor of Kate and Kathy.
    Has anyone else done this?

  2. ALSC is going to post information on tributes and memorials. You might see what is included in that information before donating. You can keep track on their blog
