Crawford's family is compiling notes about her for her nieces and nephews. Notes can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, Laura's books will be out at the Geneva Library's Youth Services Answers Desk.
Since many of her books were written in postcard format, the library is encouraging the community to stop by and write a postcard (the library has a template out) about what you like about Laura’s books, or a memory you have about Laura. The postcards will be sent to her family.
The template will be out through Oct. 18
- The Daily Herald: Geneva's Laura Crawford remembered fondly in Dist. 300
- Laura A. Crawford, 46, of Geneva, was a longtime dedicated teacher and reading specialist at Sleepy Hollow Elementary School in Sleepy Hollow. One of her passions was the children’s books she wrote. Laura was a loving and devoted daughter, sister and aunt. She will be dearly missed by her family, friends and so many students upon whose lives she left an indelible mark.
