Kelly Stade — who is the sister of fellow “Where Are They Now?” feature Emily York — enjoyed a good, hot chocolate chip cookie during her time at Hopkins. But she also devoured her education and is hoping to spark the same interest in the eager readers who come through the Hennepin County Library. Her time in the District a orded her lifelong friends and a curiosity for lifelong learning. Kelly lives in Minneapolis with her husband, 1 year-old daughter, and their two cats.
