Introducing our new librarian

Sally Romero
Armacost Library is very pleased to have Sally Romero, Visiting Reference/Instruction Librarian, join us. Please give her a warm Redlands welcome!

Below are some introductory words from Sally:

Sally Romero comes to the University of Redlands after nearly nine years in public libraries.  Her previous position was with the County of Los Angeles Public Library where she started since her junior year in high school.  While working full-time for the County of Los Angeles Public Library she also worked as an Adjunct Faculty Librarian for Chaffey College.  Born and raised in Southern California and unable to cut the umbilical cord from her family, she attended and graduated from California State UniversityFullerton in 2008 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications with an emphasis in Advertising.  Sally graduated with her Master’s in Library and Information Science from San Jose State University in 2011.  However, she never set foot on the San Jose State campus until commencement day. 

Fun facts: Sally admits that while working in Children Services for public libraries she loved to run ongoing Pajama Storytimes so she could wear her pajamas at work.  While growing up, Sally’s grandmother spoke both Spanish and Mayan to her (Sally thought it was purely Spanish).  To this day, Sally confuses certain Mayan words for Spanish.  She loves to visit her parents' hometown in the Yucatan Peninsula and she never gets tired of visiting the pyramids and exploring different cenotes (groundwater caves).
