Dear friends,

The Folger Library has a short "In Memoriam" page posted on our website,

I thought I'd pass this note from Janet Griffin on as well.

All best wishes,

Dear Folger Family,

In honor of our dear colleague, I wanted to let you know that a memorial
service is being planned for her at the Folger.  It will be held on
Friday, May 20, at 4:00 p.m., and we hope that staff, other colleagues,
friends, and family will come together to remember her, to celebrate a
wonderful life.  That day is at the end of the children's festival, one
of the last major events on the education calendar here, and so a
fitting time to commemorate Janet's great work.

The Folger has also established a special fund in her name which will
support the education programs, like "Shakespeare Steps Out," which
Janet began, and other important outreach into schools.  If anyone wants
to remember Janet in that way, donations can be sent to Megan Daly.
