I have accepted the invitation to serve as the director of the Church History Library of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this role, I look forward to sharing the Church’s history with its more than 15 million members, more than 5 million annual visitors to Temple Square, and many other interested researchers and other institutions. I take with me a profound sense of gratitude for the ways that UTEP’s traditions of opportunity and believing in dreams have transformed my life through the privilege of teaching UTEP students, serving El Paso teachers, and commemorating the history and accomplishments shared by the University and city.
About the Church History Library
The Church History Library is dedicated to preserving and sharing the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the fourth largest Christian church in America. The library opened in June 2009 and has since welcomed thousands of people interested in learning more about the history of the faith and its members. The 230,000-square-foot facility contains five floors that include a public library and reading room and storage space for thousands of books, pamphlets, unpublished records, patriarchal blessings for Church members, photographs, and audio and video recordings.
