Hello! I’m excited for my next chapter here at Spokane Community College.

Before arriving to the area in late August, I spent eight and a half years at Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech) and over a decade in Seattle. For my first year at the college, I will be serving as the liaison to Business Technology and Geology. I am committed to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion work, love organizing events, and leading open education initiatives. In my free time I enjoy travel and experimental writing.

October display: Banned books

What is a banned book and why do books get challenged?

Throughout October, SCC Library is highlighting banned books. View the online guide and/or stop by the library to see an interactive display designed by Circulation Supervisor, Kelsey MacCartney.

The display coincides with the upcoming Hagan Center Series featuring author George M. Johnson (October 25th). Johnson’s book All Boys Ain’t Blue was the second-most challenged book in the USA in 2022 and has had a profound impact on many readers across the country.
