Miriam Larson, Library Media Specialist
Miriam (aka Ms. Larson) is a teacher-student who aims to inspire creativity and active citizenship in the library. She believes libraries are central cultural institutions where we share performance traditions, written stories, digital media, and evolving community dialog. She completed her Masters of Library Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2013. She worked on a thesis project with academic mentors Kate McDowell, Sofiya Noble, and Christine Jenkins to understand racism in school libraries and identify opportunities for anti-racist library practice. She continues to seek reflection, dialog and action around social and environmental justice in learning.
