Hi, I’m Dasa Sewill, and I am so happy to be the Media Specialist at Yates Mill! Growing up, I begged to go to the public library practically every day, and was known to check books out by the shelf (or shelves) full. My first career was as a musician and teacher, playing the violin and viola. I received my undergraduate degree in music performance from Bard College, while working in the library at the reserves desk, closest to the scores and recordings. Later, working in a Music and Media Library, I realized my lifelong passion for libraries was a calling, and I completed my MSLIS at Syracuse University. I have experience working in academic, special, public, and school libraries, and love that my job at YMES lets me wear all of the hats of librarianship AND be a teacher and work with and be inspired by elementary school children!
