Dedication

My mom created and ran the library at Self Enhancement Inc for nine years, and passed her love of reading on to countless kids in the process.

This coming Monday, December 17th, The SEI library will be formally dedicated, the Genia Adair Memorial Library. It just seems right that someone who loved reading so much, and shared that with so many others should have a great tribute like this.

The ceremony is open to the community and will be held in the gymnasium of the SEI building and will include remarks from CEO Tony Hopson, SEI students and others.

Monday Dec 17th
5:00--5:30pm
3920 North Kerby Ave



It's a bit fuzzy due to having to convert the format, but she's reading The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. While hiking. Cuz that's just how she rolled.

Hey Ephany/Kronda -
I've been following your blog for awhile, and I hadn't made the connection between your mom & Genia Adair... didn't realize the two were one in the same. I've certainly heard great things about her, and it makes me realize how small the world is. I hope you're well.

Hey, Kronda - I just found your blog via a post of yours on Bike Portland. I was a student at Jefferson and always thought your Mom was the coolest librarian. I'm a bit ashamed that I didn't know the true extent of her coolness and I'm also sad to find that she is no longer with us. Please accept my belated condolences.

Your blog is beautiful, by the way. Keep it up!
