Maud’s favorite thing about the library is its ever-changing nature, the respect for intellectual freedom, and promotion of equal access to information to enlighten our communities. Most importantly, she learns something new every day at the library and can make a difference by helping people: “I believe libraries shine in their communities as long as they meet the needs of their diverse constituencies.”
Maud may be new to Blount Library, but you may recognize her from the Reference Desk at the Hardin Valley Library. Prior to joining us, she worked at the Atlanta University Center in Georgia and UTK.
She looks forward to offering APA workshops and helping organize the African American Read-In, Library Staff Open House, and the Faculty Achievement Celebration. Please encourage your students to attend these events!
Maud’s favorite quote is by Nelson Mandela: “As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others the permission to do the same.”
