Meet our new Library Director

Our new Library Director is

Samantha Moore

Join McCord Memorial Library as we welcome our new Library Director!

Sam started volunteering in public libraries at the age of 12. Her love for literature led her to pursue degrees in both Writing and English Literature before earning a Masters in Library and Information Science.

“Libraries have always been a second home to me and I’m looking forward to making a home at McCord Memorial Library in the coming years.”

Stop in and say hello and welcome her to North East!
