In-depth research, local connections

To support community needs and use librarians’ expertise in more focused ways, we follow a librarians of practice model. Each librarian gears their talents for research, relationship-building, and local expertise around a specific topic that informs how librarians select and maintain collections, develop programming, and cultivate community partnerships. Contact the staff member below about a question or idea about how the library can work with you and your local organization!
