Ngozi Agbim, 1940-2013, Former Chief Librarian

From Chief Librarian Jane Devine:

"It is with great sadness that the Library announces the passing of former Chief Librarian Ngozi Agbim, who was killed in a tragic traffic accident in Brooklyn yesterday, June 24, 2013.

Ngozi was an employee of LaGuardia Community College for over three decades, retiring in 2004. She worked tirelessly on behalf of LaGuardia students, faculty and staff to provide the best library services possible, a legacy that continues to today. She was a driving force behind the Library's move to its current location, the computerization of LaGuardia's Library and Media Resources Center, the Library's Instruction program and countless other programs and initiatives to help the student and faculty experience in the Library.

In retirement, Ngozi worked on various charitable causes with the same tireless, driven effort she provided LaGuardia with during her years of service. She was vibrant and active. Her life was cut short."
