Reckon So in Concert for the Friends Annual Meeting

June 8, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Event ImageCome out to the Friends of the Library’s very short annual meeting and stay for a fantastic afternoon of music. Reckons So features Dan Weiss (who also moonlights as the library’s director) and Mary Olive Smith. Join us out-on-the-lawn for this family fun concert – a special set for the kids followed by lots more great music. Bring the kids, the family, your friends, a picnic and kick off into summer at the library.


Dan is currently the director of the Fanwood (NJ) Memorial Library. Since he accepted that position in 1997 he has dramatically taken this small suburban library into the 21st century with improvements in facilities, staffing and service. He has served locally, regionally and state wide on many civic and library related committees and boards. In his current position Dan gets to do it all, from overseeing web development, graphics design and renovations, to public relations and fund-raising, all while being the go-to-guy for overflowing toilets and salting the front walk. With his colleague, Meg Kolaya, Dan started the consulting firm Library Connections that developed the nationally recognized and award-winning Libraries and Autism: We’re Connected project. They produced a customer service training video (updated in 2014) and website primarily for library staff to help them serve individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families more effectively. Dan and Meg have given many customer service and autism workshop presentations and keynote addresses, participated in conferences, taught online courses and consulted both locally and around the United States. After hours, Dan continues his varied music career, now with well over 50 years of performing, singing and playing the guitar. He loves all kinds of music with a special fondness for vocalists (Hank Williams, Ray Charles, Billie Holiday and George Jones), bluegrass, honky-tonk, and acoustic roots country.
