We regret to inform library patrons and friends of the death of Carol Elaine Meyer-Keener, Law Librarian and head administrator of the Cincinnati Law Library Association for nearly thirty years. Carol passed away on December 18, 2014. She saw the Law Library (now called the Hamilton County Law Library) through many changes before her retirement in 1995 including renovations to the library's space and the emergence of electronic resources.
Carol served the Ohio Regional Association of Law Libraries, the OSBA's Law Libraries Committee, and other groups, in addition to heading the Law Library. Carol was a graduate of the University of Florida (B.A.) and the University of Illinois (M.S.L.S.) Earlier positions included cataloger at Marx Law Library, University of Cincinnati, and reference librarian at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County. Carol authored A History of the Cincinnati Law Library Association (1972) and wrote for several local, regional, and national law library publications. The legal community will remember Carol's enthusiasm and congeniality as well as her service to many organizations.
A celebration of her life will be held this Sunday, January 11, 2015 from 3:00-6:00 p.m. at the Montgomery Inn, Montgomery, Ohio. The family requests donations to The Library Foundation in support of the St. Bernard Branch, in lieu of flowers.
Carol's Cincinnati Enquirer obituary provides additional information.
