The Octavia Fellin Library recently hired Suzanne Feldberg as deputy director. Prior to coming to Gallup she was the librarian at Hopi Junior Senior High School. She served as the librarian at Albuquerque Academy and the Director of Library and Media Services for 19 school districts in Otsego County, New York.

Feldberg holds a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from Long Island University, a master’s degree in Library and Information Science from the Palmer School of Library and Information Science, and an advanced degree in Educational Leadership from Stony Brook University. She also has coursework in Online Teaching and Learning from the University of Wisconsin and is certified by the state of New Mexico in ESL and ELL tutoring for adults.

Having lived in several places including Nova Scotia, Canada; Heidelberg, Germany; upstate and downstate New York; Arizona; and New Mexico, Ms. Feldberg believes that cultures are connected more by their similarities than their differences, and her goal is to use that approach to enhance library outreach efforts in Gallup.

Her skills include technology training, educational technology integration, community outreach, photography and lithography.  With this diverse portfolio she will continue to develop the library’s outreach and increase the computer and technology classes being offered by Octavia Fellin Library.
