Ryan Deery

Ryan’s goal of helping others learn how to learn and ensuring that everyone has access to the resources they need to participate in this cooperative creation of knowledge, first grew at the University of Michigan where he earned his B.A. It then took him to Santiago, Chile, where he completed the Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certification, and next to Utah State University, where he earned a master’s in Writing and Literature.

However, it was his participation in the AmeriCorp VISTA program through the Kellogg-Hubbard Library of Montpelier, Vermont, that brought him to the understanding that a public library setting was where he could most successfully build bridges between diverse information and learners. This understanding led to his current position as the Children’s Programming and Circulation Librarian at the KHL and prompted his desire to pursue an MLIS and to become a Project ALFA Fellow.
