This endowment honors the memory of Janet Weldon Noah, an elementary school teacher and wife of the late James Noah, an emeritus professor of journalism and former public relations director at San José State University. Janet was an avid reader and published author who taught for many years in San José's Union School District and was notably recognized as that district’s Teacher of the Year in 1990. She also loved the outdoors, particularly hiking and picnicking with Jim and their family. This endowment is intended to enrich the King Library's collection of children’s literature, award winning books, and the history and criticism of children’s literature.
