Director of Libraries Waterville, ME

Colby College has named Lareese Hall its new Director of Libraries, effective August 2018.

Currently the dean of libraries at the Rhode Island School of Design, Hall has worked in libraries at MIT; the University of North Carolina, Charlotte; Denison University; Carnegie Mellon University; and the University of New Mexico. Her approach to librarianship—as a critical, social, and creative interdisciplinary practice—is grounded not only in her academic library background, but in more than a decade of experience in education, public art, and community development.

As director of libraries at Colby, Hall will oversee the programs of Miller Library—Colby’s flagship library—as well as the Bixler Art and Music Library, the Science Library, and Special Collections. More information about this appointment may be found here.
