Adult Services librarian Raivynn


Location: Southwest Regional Library

Raivynn is an Adult Services Librarian at Southwest Regional Library. Born in Ohio, they have moved around quite a bit in pursuit of education and the perfect scoop of ice cream. A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin’s School of Information, they are passionate about digital literacy, diversity, and accessibility in libraries. They are a big fan of almost every genre of music, graphic novels, and (not too thrilling) thrillers. When not roaming the stacks, they enjoy going for hikes, baking, and hanging out with their partner.

Pronouns: they/them
