Kay Daniels Cohen

Kay Daniels CohenWe at the Library mourn the passing of Kay Daniels Cohen, and we extend our heartfelt sympathy to Jack, Buddy, and her many, many friends. We also celebrate her life and her wonderful spirit.

The Takoma Park Library enjoyed a special relationship with Kay. She was an avid and eclectic reader. Before her Council duties kept her busy, she attended many of the Friends Reading Goup discussions – bringing copious notes and contributing insightful comments about the authors.

As an active Friend of the Library – she ran the Board elections at their annual meetings, and helped at the book sales. She read at our annual Favorite Poem Evenings – usually coming in colorful costume. One such occasion occurred on Kay’s birthday. She came and read anyway – and we celebrated with two birthday cakes that year – one provided by us, and another unexpectedly brought by Kay.

Most recently – she was the person most responsible for the Library’s being able to open on Sundays. This was an endeavor that was dear to her heart – and has been enthusiastically received by our patrons.

Kay was not only an ardent Library supporter – but a believer in the power of conviction, and of the joy to be felt in active effort, and in living fully – every hour of every day.
