Remembering Leonard Nimoy and Terry Pratchet

By Rebecca Tischler, Reference Department

Leonard Nimoy and Terry Pratchett have both become beloved by the American Public, and their loss was painful to everyone who looked up to them.  I can’t say any more than has already been said about these individuals, and I can’t memorialize them any better than has already been done, so I’m going to do what librarians do best.  I’m going to provide you with information and links about them that may make you smile and remember.
