KSG Library Dedicates Raines Reading Room

KSG Dean Joseph Nye, Library Director Ellen Isenstein, Franklin Raines

On October 24, the reading room of the Kennedy School of Government (KSG) Library was named in honor of Franklin Raines '71, JD '76, and Wendy Farrow Raines '79. The dedication reflects their recent, generous gift in support of the KSG Library and other critical areas of the School's public service mission. A Raines Family Book Fund has also been established to support the acquisition of public policy books and other print materials.

Calling Raines a "steady friend and tremendous supporter of the School in every way," KSG Dean Joseph Nye thanked Franklin and Wendy Raines for their donation, which has allowed the library to restore funds previously cut from its book budget and reinstate the "after-hours study hall," which had been eliminated due to lack of funding.

KSG Library Director Ellen Isenstein termed the Raines gift "one of the best things that has ever happened" during her tenure at the library, something that will allow the library's book collection efforts to "stay healthy in difficult economic times."
