Highly Textured Librarian: Ronunda

high•ly tex•tured li•brar•i•an: A person who is a specialist in library work and has curly or kinky hair.

Welcome Ronunda to Librarian Dreams.

1. What is your signature hair style and how do you achieve it?

I have been natural since 2003 (“the Amber Rose” was my signature) and I’ve grown & cut my hair several times however, now I constantly wear the shrunken TWA achieved by washing and going!

2. Which books could give insight on you as a person?

There are 2 books that speak for me: Thomas Chatterton Williams’ Losing My Cool – because he goes through his own coming of age where he realizes his own potential for success and the lessons his father was trying to teach him from a young age. The other is The Giver by Lois Lowery – from a young age I took away the message that you have to embrace your differences and follow your own paths in life.

3. What is your role at the library?

I am still in library school, however, I work in an academic library, as a University Library Technician. I work in both the library’s archive, managing the university’s history, and at the references desk helping students getting information they need!

4. What do you enjoy about library school?

Definitely being able to make the program work for my interests. I came in with the idea that I wanted to go into health sciences and move to DC. After coming to my program I’ve learned that I like the technology aspect of the field and have been given the opportunity to just learn, shadow, and talk to many friendly librarians already in the field and learn from them.
