Black Librarians and the Culture

Long gone are the days of using the encyclopedia, when Google is at your fingertips. However, in the 21st Century, the library is still relevant as before technology took over.

From card catalogs to BiblioCommons, a web-based platform for all your library resources, including book and e-book catalog searches. Librarians are still impacting and changing their communities with a loving force.

I had the pleasure of speaking with three Black librarians committed to serving their community and changing the narrative of librarians.   

The Librarians: Sabrina Robinson, a Teen Library Associate. Kyle Hearns, a Circulation Library Associate, and De’Trice Fox, a Branch Manager.

Each of these librarians from Charlotte Mecklenburg Library shared their connection with the library, favorite Black literature, journey into Librarianship, and so much more.
