The staff of the Great Neck Library mourns the passing of our friend and colleague, Risha Rosner, who passed away on March 31, 2010, after a long illness. Mrs. Rosner worked as a reference librarian at the library for 35 years and as the reference assistant department head for 22 years. She had a special talent for understanding the Great Neck community, a community in which she had lived most of her married life – its history and the type of books the public was interested in reading. She helped organize the library’s local history collection, overseeing the creation of a Great Neck History room to house the library’s growing collection of local history. She will be sorely missed. Risha was a very knowledgeable librarian, much admired by her co-workers.
