Ruth McGuire

Director of Library Services


I completed the MLS at the Unviersity of Alabama (Roll Tide!). A couple years later, I moved to MN as a newlywed and began working at the Berntsen Library. I've been there ever since, taking on the role of Library Director in November 2005. When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, baking, being in nature, traveling, and (of course) reading.
