The family of Justin VanPoelvoorde has set up a memorial fund to benefit the New York Public Library. To contribute, click this link.

VanPoelvoorde's family had this to say:

Justin was an NYPL employee since 2001 and was a Senior Librarian at the Roosevelt Island Branch for the last 15 years.

Justin's commitment to and enthusiasm for the mission of NYPL inspired him to create and conduct many programs and classes at the library. He believed deeply in the benefits to society offered by free access to information, and media of all kinds. He was also a great fan of movies and science fiction and took special delight in film series and book discussion groups he was able to lead for the people of Roosevelt Island and surrounding areas.

A gift in honor of Justin VanPoelvoorde will support the work of the Library and help others continue his work for future generations.

Justin's family will be notified of your generosity.
