Celebrating Jean

Jean was born and raised in Manhattan and is a graduate of Hunter College and earned her Masters Degree in English literature from Columbia University (class of 1940). She went on to teach for nearly 40 years in the Katonah and Somers school systems, including 22 years as the librarian at Somers Primrose Elementary.

Jean dedicated her life to children and reading. At Primrose, and for decades after her retirement, Jean conducted many story hours inspiring many generations of children to read and appreciate literature. Last October, the Somers Library Foundation honored Jean for her role in spearheading the building of the Somers library at Reis Park and her services as a library trustee for over 50 years. The Childrens Room at the library is named in her honor. Jean was also an active member of other organizations, receiving numerous awards, including Westchester County Citizen of the Year and the Westchester Library Systems Service Award.
