Taylor is the current African American Collection and Community Engagement Librarian at the Douglass-Truth Library in the Seattle Public Libraries System.
Her previous position was Librarian-in-Residence in the Latin American, Caribbean, and European Division (LAC&E) at the Library of Congress. Her project titled “Freedom in the Black Diaspora: A Resource Guide for Ayiti-Re-imagined” was created to encourage more exploration of topics regarding the African diaspora through its collections. These interviews were conducted to answer a recent call to action in Haitian studies to engage historical sources in centering Haitian cultural and historical contributions to Black liberation movements in the United States and Latin America.
Additionally, she was a University of Washington Libraries McKinstry Fellow and ALA Spectrum Scholar while completing her MLIS at the University of Washington (UW) in June 2021. Lastly, she has a BA in Political Science and International Affairs from the University of Georgia with a minor in African American Studies.
Her passion is carving out space for Black representation in our library collections and amplifying Black memory work.
