My name is Sarah Wicker and I am a freshman at William & Mary. I am a student associate in the circulation department, so you will often see me at the front desk to answer questions, check out books, or help you find something. I grew up loving libraries, and I always have two or three books in my bag (for emergencies of course). I have a passion for mathematics and art, and I currently intend to major in both subjects.

    Hi everyone! My name is Zihan Yang, most people know me as Carrie. I’m an international student from China and this is my third year at William & Mary (how time flies). Back home, I love to spend my free time at my high school’s library and the public library, so when I came to college, the first place I went to check out was the library. I immediately fell in love with our Swem library because it’s so beautiful and resourceful.

As libraries are changing, librarians are changing with them. Even as I sit down today to write about my daily work life, I know that it might be a different story in a year.

    In my first two years at W&M, I rarely went to Swem. It was crowded and busy and stressful, and I preferred the coziness of my own room. But for the past year and a half, I have stepped into Swem hundreds of times, more than my freshman self could have possibly imagined.

    Hi, I’m Azana Carr, and I work as a student assistant for the W&M Libraries External Relations office.  The best way to describe my job is: “You know all the events, workshops, and therapy dogs that happen in Swem? We do that!”

    Our collection of artists’ books is ever-growing and teeming with innovative ways to redefine the traditional codex; the Old Stile Press is only a small introduction to the craftsmanship found hidden among our Special Collections.
