Staff Biography…

Sharon Rupp, has been the Library Manager since September of 2006.  She holds a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science from University of South Carolina, Columbia.

She & her husband, Michael and their seven cats, live so close to her job that she is able to walk to work.  Her hobbies are, of course, reading, and gardening (come see some of the many plants in the library’s windows).  Her favorite part of working at the library is helping students find resources and giving advice on their assignments.  She also enjoys doing library orientation classes for several of the University 101 and English classes to help the students learn to use the databases available of the Library’s website.
