Meet Terra McLeod, your new branch manager for the Goldendale Library. Terra grew up in southern Oregon and graduated from North Medford High School. She then went to Southern Oregon University for her undergraduate degree in applied cultural anthropology. Then she sold her car and moved to New York to study at Pratt Institute, where she got her Master’s in Library Science MLIS.
She then got a job at the Queens Library, where she worked for a year as the librarian. Then she did a 180 and ended up teaching hot yoga in New York, where she started going to Brooklyn College for pre-med after thinking about becoming a physical therapist. She realized that what she loved was being a librarian.
She ended up moving back to southern Oregon to deal with some personal family matters. Once those were settled, she wanted to move more north and so applied for the job working as the new branch manager for the Goldendale Library branch position.
Terra loves taking bike rides around town and taking walks in nature, along with getting to know people. She hopes to spend a good amount of the summer taking bike rides and meeting more of the community.
