Last week, all three full time faculty librarians at Mt Hood Community College–Teresa Hazen, Julia Longbrake and Anna Johnson–were given layoff notices. Yep, you read that right: 100% of the full time professional library staff has been pink slipped. This news came as a shock to the library and the campus, where faculty, students, and staff continue to voice clear support for our faculty librarians and their critical roles on this campus.
Concerned members of the library community are encouraged to contact MHCC’s library director Jeff Ring at firstname.lastname@example.org.
