Linda Rolls retires from University Libraries

After serving WMU for 50 years, Linda Rolls retires at the close of Spring Semester. She served in many roles at the Libraries: head of reference services, head of science reference, associate dean, and interlibrary loan librarian.

She was the first African-American librarian on campus and became the first African-American professor at WMU. She took on many new tasks with great commitment. She will be missed around the libraries.

Here is a photo collage of some of her times at WMU.
