Honoring Katie
Dance is a universal language, one that crosses all boundaries.  Kathleen “Katie” Elizabeth Jackson had a gift for communicating with dance that she shared with those around her.  After her death in 2015 in a tragic automobile accident, her parents, Daniel and Sandra Jackson, looked for ways to ensure that Katie’s positive energy would continue to benefit and inspire others.  After establishing a scholarship in Katie’s memory with the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut, they approached the Putnam Public Library with an idea to benefit the library and keep her memory and spirit alive. Children’s Librarian Tina Aubin and Library Director Priscilla Colwell worked with the Jacksons to purchase two children’s rocking chairs and beautiful picture books for the library’s collection. Katie enjoyed being in Miss Tina’s first preschool story time in 1998, and used the library throughout her young life.  Her generosity will continue to make people smile and she will be remembered, Colwell said.
