In Memory of Jane Saliers

Jane Saliers passed away last week at the age of 73.  Her obituary appeared in yesterday's edition of the AJC.  It is filled with family remembrances.

Ms. Saliers graced the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System for 30 years, including the Ponce de Leon Branch where she worked as a children's librarian.  I took my young sons there to hear her storytimes in the mid-1990s.  She read with love and enthusiasm.

Our condolences go out to her family, including daughter Emily Saliers of the Indigo Girls and of Watershed.

According to the AJC: In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Atlanta Public Library Foundation, c/o Sherry Siclair, 1 Margaret Mitchell Square, Atlanta, GA, 30303. Gifts should be designated "for summer reading program."
