ありがとう、Helen Kreislerさん


今朝、朝一番のメールで悲しいお知らせが届きました。

The Robbins Library wishes to share sad news with the families who frequent the Robbins Library. Our dear children's librarian, Helen Kreisler, has just passed away. Her death, by natural causes, has shocked us all. Helen brightened the room with her smile, her kind manner and her eagerness to help. As a professional photographer (http://helenkreisler.wordpress.com/, http://www.flickr.com/photos/helenkreisler/ ) Helen's photos reveal a passion for beauty in nature and a keen observer of people. She was a valued coworker and a cherished friend. She will be sorely missed.

We will not be holding our normal story times this week (November 8 and November 10.) We will have a book at the desk in the Children's Room for those who would like to share a few words about or would like to write a farewell to Helen. The Friends of the Robbins Library will be accepting donations in Helen's honor; the library will use the funds for a special purchase for the Children's Room in honor of Helen's memory. We will let you know about memorial service/funeral arrangements as soon as we know more.

私達がこの町に住み始めてから、ずっとお世話になった図書館のお姉さんでした。
ご本を探すときも,返却が遅れて慌てたときも,学校の調べもののときも、いつも優しい笑顔で子供達の目線だったHelen...

ありがとう、どうぞ安らかに・・・
