George Strawley

George Strawley

George Strawley comes to the Uinta County Library System after seven years at College of The Albemarle, a community college based in Elizabeth City, N.C.  More specifically, George served as Dare County Campus Librarian in Manteo, N.C., site of the ill-fated “Lost Colony” established under the sponsorship of Sir Walter Ralegh. His Master of Library and Information Studies degree comes from Rutgers University, but he also holds master’s degrees in journalism from Ohio State University and liberal arts from St. John’s College in Annapolis, Md.  He says that earning three master’s degrees was never his plan in life and should not be anyone else’s. Before entering the field of librarianship, George was a reporter for The Press of Atlantic City (N.J.) and The Associated Press in Harrisburg, Pa. He is originally from the Philadelphia area.
