Lisa, All Our Best!

Farewell Lisa!

Yes, we are missing you – your legacy remains and we are finding little Lisa reminders all over the Library: Lisa’s arm chair, stool, a bento, packets of exotic teas in the kitchen, and boxes of books scattered throughout the Library for review.

Slowly but surely, we are trying to keep alive the Lisa tradition of farmer’s market goodies appearing on a table in the Library workroom.

One of the things we will always remember about Lisa is that her door was always open; there was time to discuss the important things in life, and the frank straight-from-the-heart talk of how things are, and more importantly how things could be.


Thankfully, Lisa has left us with events that have now become bigger and better, and have touched the lives of children not only in New York City but in far off lands such as Kazakhstan:

The Kerlan Collection

We know that this is old news for most of you but after sixteen years at Bank Street, Lisa is moving to Minnesota where she will be the Curator of the Children’s Literature Research Collection at the University of MN, which includes the Kerlan Collection. Yes, Lisa we are missing you – all the best!

Reference librarian at Bank Street College Library.

  1. I am missing you all very much. Have fun at Bookfest@BankStreet. Be nice to John Coy and Michael Dahl, they are my new neighbors. Moving truck arrives tomorrow morning at 8:00 am. Minnesotans like to get to work early. And yes it did snow today so I got to wear the bright blue parka that the wise members of the Book Committee gave me.
