Library Conference Room To Be Named For Former Librarian

MONTICELLO, AR — The University of Arkansas at Monticello will name a conference room in the Taylor Library and Technology Center after the late Sandra Campbell, long-time director of the library, who died February 2, 2015.

            Mrs. Campbell was a graduate of Warren High School and joined the UAM staff in 1984 as assistant librarian. She was named director of the Taylor Library in 2001. She held a bachelor of arts degree in English from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff and a master of library science degree from Clark Atlanta University. She also completed post-graduate study at Texas Women’s University.

            Prior to joining the UAM staff, Mrs. Campbell was director of the Bradley County Library in Warren.

            “Mrs. Campbell was a wonderful part of the UAM family and she is missed every day by those of us who were fortunate enough to know her,” said UAM Interim Chancellor Jay Jones. “In some small way we hope the Sandra Campbell Conference Room will honor her memory.”
