Christine Glaab - 7 August 2016

Christine Glaab

On May 14,2016 Christine Glaab lost her five year battle with breast cancer. She was a law librarian by profession and a dedicated bibliophile.

What you may not know is that Christine was dedicated to improving the education of underprivileged children in West Virginia and over a twenty year period donated thousands of books to the Pocahontas County Public Library system and the Green Bank Middle School. She was also instrumental in obtaining the library shelving for the Pocahontas County Library system. All of this was done without fanfare.

Christine believed that reading, and the love of books was tantamount to a good education.

To carry on her legacy of reading and education the Christine Glaab Law Librarian Fellowship has been established at the University of Maryland's College of Information Studies (click here for the complete press release). This scholarship will provide $25,000 to cover tuition and fees for an academic year of graduate studies. Preference will be given to students applying from West Virginia and hopefully from Pocahontas County.

It is my hope that this scholarship will provide an education opportunity for someone who seeks to become a law librarian and carry on the legacy of the love of books and education for others.
