Remembering Librarians Kathy Krasniewicz and Kate McClelland
The Greenwich Times profiles the two librarians killed in the tragic crash reported here earlier today. The two were headed home to CT from ALA when the taxi van they were riding in was slammed into by another driver.
The library's head of youth services, Kathy Krasniewicz, 54, of Palmer Hill Road, Riverside, and former youth services director Kate McClelland, 71, of Dorchester Lane, Riverside, were killed in the accident, cause by an alleged drunk driver.
"We received the tragic news of the passing of our colleagues in Denver today," said library Director Kevin McCarthy, who declined to comment further Wednesday evening. "It's too raw at the moment. The shock has not worn off yet."
