Nevada State Library, Archives and Public Records
Acting Administrator
Tammy’s great passion is advancing educational opportunities through the library.  She enjoys helping people strengthen key skills and abilities so they can step into living wage jobs and see where life takes them from there. Tammy Westergard is the Acting State Librarian at the Nevada State Library, Archives and Public Records. Prior to that she was the Library District Director for a 15-branch system in southern Oregon, and both the Deputy Director and Interim Director at the Carson City Library in Nevada. She graduated from the University of North Texas library science program in 2014, and was recognized as an “agent of change” among a national list of 2016 Movers & Shakers profiled in Library Journal. Her Mover and Shaker recognition was earned in part for work that demonstrated public libraries as an essential onramp for workforce development in advanced manufacturing. The effort has helped people land jobs at places like Tesla/Panasonic in northern Nevada.  “The library is the place where you can get your feet on the floor and figure things out one logical step at a time,” says Westergard.
