The library is a vital piece of Maxine’s legacy and we want to thank the following individuals and institutions for enabling us to take this next step in carrying that forward. This could not have happened without the support and dedication provided by Eve Hauser, Will Sacks, Will Arnold of Design Brooklyn, and the Maxine Greene Institute Library Committee: Holly Fairbank (Executive Director, Maxine Greene Institute), Alison Lehner-Quam (Chair, Library Committee), Carole Saltz, Meredith Smith; Linda Miles and Deborah Dosamantes for their work on the original bibliography of Maxine Greene’s work; Janet Miller for the archive creation; and Katie Embree and Jennifer Govan at Teachers College for their generosity in providing access to Teachers College’s resources.
