Logan Library Assistant Director & Adult Nonfiction Librarian
πŸ“ Shoshone land / Utah, USA
I’m a humanist librarian advocating for people-centred libraries. Such libraries value free (priceless and liberated) information and literacy, life-long education, communication and dialogue, kindness, community, diversity, historical perspective and progressive thinking, egalitarianism and democracy, honesty and accountability, privacy, health, ecological concern, and conclusions/decisions/policies/practices based on evidence and empathy.

My professional specialities include maintaining adult non-fiction collections (selection and deselection for the Dewey classes, reference, local history, and educational audio/video), customer service, research, working with Friends groups, and defending intellectual freedom. I'm an active member of the Utah Library Association and the Cache Valley Library Association, which I helped establish more than a decade ago.

I was born in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1980 and I now live and work on land which was the historic territory of the Shoshone people. A lifelong Anglophile, I enjoy reading medieval English history, The Guardian, and George Orwell; watching Sky News, Mr. Bean, and filmed adaptations of Brit lit; listening to Britpop, the work of Ralph Vaughan Williams, and the BBC World Service; cheering Dorchester Town FC, the Three Lions, and the Lionesses; observing Westminster politics; and driving a Mini Cooper. I'm happily married to Amy, an exceptional counsellor at Logan High School (https://www.linkedin.com/in/amy-anderson-61a27780) and together we have five wonderful children. All seven of us visited England in Oct 2016 for the 950th anniversary of the battle of Hastings. πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§
