Tammy Westergard, MLS
Project SANDI Coordinator, Governor's Office of Economic Development
(775) 684-3306

In wholehearted agreement with Valerie Gross that libraries equal education, Tammy Westergard was named an agent of change and a 2016 LJ Mover and Shaker for her role in advancing the opportunity to earn advanced manufacturing industry credentials in a public library. Reasoning every citizen can get what’s necessary to land good jobs, Tammy says that education in all its forms is a widespread responsibility—a duty that we collectively share. “While our formal places of education have primary jurisdiction over the day-to-day instruction of students, the State Library should and does play a supportive role,” says Westergard.  “Meaningfully linked learning opportunities between the formal classroom, home and third places of learning (like libraries and museums) leads to skilled and qualified workers and, more importantly, health and longevity. The Nevada XR Libraries pilot project is so gratifying and the generosity of the folks helping to make this happen is a testament to their commitment to bridging the digital divide and making emerging technologies widely accessible."
