Billie Durham

Billie Durham (1981), School Library Media Program Coordinator, attended ALA in Chicago this summer and participated in NCATE Reviewer Training. She has been appointed to serve as a member of the State Library’s Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Advisory Committee for a three year term and attended her first meeting in Raleigh this August.

Billie and her husband Carey recently hosted an evening reception in celebration of the University Libraries of UNCG along with two other couples. The reception highlighted the libraries’ Special Collections such as the textile collection from China and the biomusic collection. Dr. Patricia Gray, professor of biomusic at UNCG, described her groundbreaking research on the musical abilities of bonobo apes for the invited guests. Currently, Billie is especially interested in promoting awareness of and support for a possible re-location of Montgomery County Public Library to a downtown location in Troy. Her travels to school libraries in both the Charlotte and Greensboro areas as part of her supervision duties for the LIS Field Experience continue to keep her in contact with many UNCG LIS alumni.
