Foryses honored with memorial library donation

The King County Library System (KCLS) is honoring former Northshore School District Superintendent Karen Forys and her husband, Ed, who both passed away in 2007 and 2011, respectively, by dedicating the "Forys Meeting Room" and the "Forys Atrium" at the Woodinville Library.

"Thanks to this gracious and welcome gift from Ed and Karen, KCLS will continue to bring literacy, learning and library access to all members of the Woodinville community," said KCLS Foundation Director Jeanne Thorsen. "We deeply appreciate this generous donation and, on behalf of the library patrons in King County, offer profound thanks to Ed's three sisters."

According to KCLS, it was the couple's wish to make a significant donation to the library system and to support library programs and activities in the Woodinville library.
