We’re so happy to welcome Makayla Raley to the Mudd Library! Makayla is the newest member of the library staff, in the newest position! She’s our full time Circulation Services Assistant and Night Supervisor. To help everyone get to know her, we asked her a few questions:
Where did you grow up?
Sioux Falls, South Dakota
What did you study in school?
I got my Bachelors in English at the University of South Dakota in 2019 and I’m currently working on my Masters in Library and Information Science online at Emporia State University.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I don’t have that much free time at the moment since I have a full time job and I’m taking 2 online classes. But when I do have time, I like to read, browse social media, watch movies, hang out with friends, and play Animal Crossing on my Switch.
What is your favorite thing about working in a library?
I love being surrounded by books. When I’m in a library I’m happy and content. I also love being able to help people with book related questions and seeing the smile on their faces when I’ve been able to help them find the book that they were looking for.
Science Fiction and Fantasy
Please join us in welcoming Makayla to Lawrence when you see her in the library!
