Vice President for Information Services and University Librarian Krisellen Maloney (l.) and Interim Director of Paul Robeson Library Katie Anderson (r.) welcome Dr. Carla Hayden (center) to Paul Robeson Library.

This year, Rutgers University-Camden welcomed Dr. Carla Hayden, Librarian of Congress, as their commencement speaker. Dr. Hayden has broken new ground as both the first woman and the first African American to hold this position. So, you can imagine how excited the faculty and staff at Paul Robeson Library were to meet her when she stopped by earlier this week before addressing our 2017 graduates and receiving an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters.

We were delighted to give her a tour of the Library and to present her with a tote bag full of Rutgers goodies.
