FOL History

Jan Null


Friends Of the Library would like to honor one of our outstanding members, Jan Null. Jan moved to Walden from San Antonio, Texas in 2008 where she was an English-Literature school teacher. Her love for books naturally led her to our library in Montgomery. She loved novels, mysteries, and the classics. She was an avid reader. If there was a Book Club or a Book Share around, she joined it. Our new library was only 2 years old when she arrived and fell in love with it. She joined Friends Of the Library and soon became our Vice-President and served on our Executive Board. One of the duties of the office was to schedule the program for our quarterly meetings. Through the years she provided many interesting programs for us. Jan belonged to a club called “Lake Conroe Area Newcomers Club” and many of our programs were shared by this club. She contributed many hours of her time working the fund-raisers and supporting the library. Jan had many friends and we are proud to be among them.
