Frances Sedney – In Memoriam

Frances Sedney, a great friend of CLNE and a dedicated librarian, died on May 21, 2015.  She retired in 1995 from her position as Coordinator of Children’s Services for the Harford County Public Library of Maryland. In that role, and in her work with the American Library Association, she was a tireless advocate for sharing books with children and a deep believer in all that children’s literature can mean in a child’s life.  She was especially dedicated to making books available to under-served children.  Since the founding of CLNE, Frances Sedney was an active participant, advisor and discussion leader. Read her full obituary.
