A service will be held for Ann Wolpert, director of libraries at MIT, in January 2014.
A message from Steve Gass and Diane Geraci, co-interim directors, MIT Libraries:
We are grateful for the many expressions of sympathy and caring we continue to receive from near and far that have sustained us and the library staff during the last six weeks. Many of you asked to be kept informed about plans for a service and charity for Ann.
In conjunction with Ann's family we have now established both. MIT will host a memorial service and reception on Jan. 31, 2014 at 3:00 pm. This celebration of Ann's life will be open to the academic and professional community both locally and nationally. We have also established a gift fund in memory of Ann—the Ann J. Wolpert Strategic Initiatives Fund to support the MIT Libraries. Bonny Kellermann '72, Director of Memorial Gifts, can be contacted at bonnykmit [dot] edu for details.
Steve will send out a more detailed announcement and program at the beginning of January, but we wanted you to have this preliminary information now.
With best regards,
Steve Gass and Diane Geraci
