In Memoriam

 

Nancy LangIn July 2016, Nancy Lang, who worked at the Dunbarton Public Library as the Children’s and Teen Librarian, passed away after a battle with cancer. Probably no one in the NH library community had a longer tenure on the CHILIS Board than Nancy. Nancy joined the Board more than 15 years ago, and served in various roles including Newsletter Chair, Treasurer, conference photographer and CHILIS webmaster. Nancy’s “institutional memory” was invaluable, and she helped the Board grow as a governing body. Nancy gave countless hours toward the work of CHILIS and shared her wisdom and sense of humor with all of us. She welcomed new members to the organization, donated many items to conference raffles, and offered her technical expertise to many of our projects. She will be greatly missed, both by those of us who served with her over the years as well as by many children’s librarians around the state.
