Ciao, Jean Johnson

Jean Johnson’s last day of employment at Lehigh is today, May 31.


She’s been here for more than three decades, for the last fifteen years as Team Leader for the LTS College of Education Team and Education Librarian.

Throughout her career, she’s displayed grace and warmth, insatiable curiosity and an unmatched ability to connect with library inquirers in a productive and personal way.

Jean has given so much of herself to life, learning and fun(!) at Lehigh, for which we will always be grateful.

Yesterday, she requested, so uncharacteristically, an event in her honor. She helped a small group turn the page of the Audubon Birds of America volume on display in Linderman in a little celebration marking the elephant-folio-sized page turn in her own life.

    I am so excited and thrilled for Jean as she sets forth on this next great life stage, yet I am so sad to say goodbye to a cherished colleague who contributed immeasurably to Lehigh’s library.
