Gabby Fuentes
General Instruction & Research Librarian

My name is Gabby Fuentes. I grew up in Northern California, in a small town in the forests of Sonoma County. After a hiatus to New Orleans, LA, I moved to Olympia, WA, where the beauty of the Puget Sound swayed me to call the Northwest home for nearly a decade. I have my Bachelor's in the Liberal Arts, from the Evergreen State College in Olympia, and a Master's in Library Science from Emporia State University. I am leaving Timberland Regional Library, a vibrant and community needs focused public library system in Western Washington, to work with HSU. On my off time I enjoy hiking, soap making, reading memoirs and comics, cooking, and gardening. I am passionate about public education and am excited to become a part of the HSU community.

Digital Media & Learning Librarian

I am an HSU alum (BS in Biology, 2000; MS in Kinesiology, 2005) and began working as a librarian at HSU in 2014. Over my library career I’ve worked in public, jail and academic libraries, most recently focusing on teaching drop-in SkillShops and library instruction/liaison for programs in the College of Professional Studies. My various interests converge on teaching and learning with emerging technologies and I look forward to my new role as Digital Media & Learning Librarian and the exciting new possibilities with the new Digital Media Lab where students, faculty and staff can explore new ways to share their work and passions and build their portfolio. The library will have audio/video equipment (incl. GoPro & 360 camera) and software (incl. Adobe Creative Cloud) for creating a variety of projects.
