Warmack Named to Library Association Board

Phoebe Warmack, director of Woodberry Forest’s William H. White, Jr. Library, will join the board of directors of the American Association of School Librarians this summer.

Phoebe will serve on the executive committee and as the independent schools section representative, highlighting the strengths and interests of the more than 800 independent schools that are members of the AASL, an organization of more than 7,000 school librarians in the United States, Canada, and around the world.

Over the past two years Phoebe has been a critical part of the library’s move from its long-time home in Hanes Hall to its new home in the Walker Building. The new library space, which was dedicated in November, includes the Reynolds Family Learning Commons and the Dunnington Reading Room
