  1. Many of us at the Baltimore County Public Library, particularly those of us who worked at the Randallstown and Pikesville branches, remember Harriett warmly. Harriet reserved books by the dozens, coming in regularly to check them out and then reserve some more. We enjoyed hearing about the novel she was writing and her opinions of what she read and we still visualize her with her bonnet protecting her latest coiffure! Please accept our condolences.

    • Hi Judy, I didn’t realize there was a comment left here about my mom (Harriet.) I just noticed your comment, as I found this post today (years later.) Thank you so much for your kind words. She loved the library. It was one of her favorite places to be. We all miss her very much every day.
