A Warm Welcome and a Sad Goodbye at Sierra

We welcome Ben Wingard as the new librarian at our Nevada County Campus library in Grass Valley. Ben previously worked at Cosumnes River College where he provided reference and instruction services and participated in various campus committees and workgroups.  The NCC library is currently undergoing a renovation, so Ben will have the opportunity to provide input on the design of this exciting new learning commons space.  Ben, it’s great to have you on board!

We will have to say goodbye to Sabrina Pape, Dean of the Library and Learning Resource Center, as she is retiring at the end of October. Sabrina served as director of libraries at Vassar College in New York before she came to Sierra in 2014. In addition to supervising the library, she was also responsible for distance learning, tutoring and the writing center. One of her proud accomplishments was overseeing the renovation of the Rocklin campus library space into a colorful, dynamic learning commons. Happy retirement, Sabrina!
