Mary Jane Manahan's family, friends, co-workers, and acquaintances celebrated her life today with great stories and memories, laughter and plenty of tears. Mary Jane made the children's library a very special place for our children and families. Grace Greene reminded us that Mary Jane's contribution was felt throughout Vermont as she served on several advisory and working committees on behalf of children's literacy.
Mary Jane was one of a kind: very intelligent, very creative, very giving, completely knowledgeable of the KHL children's collection, a voracious reader of adult non-fiction, had a killer fashion sense, knew how to make work fun and had an infectious smile. Thank you Mary Jane for everything you gave us!
