Hannah is the Research and Instructional Services humanities intern, and spends her time between Perkins and Lilly libraries. She is currently pursuing a master’s in library science at UNC-Chapel Hill, and is interested in special collections and academic librarianship. Hannah graduated from UNC in spring 2018 with a degree in comparative literature. Literary theory, Russian fiction, and international film are some of her favorite topics of study. She thinks Tolstoy is the best writer ever.

Hannah was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, and now calls Carrboro home. She enjoys hiking around Chapel Hill, sharing good food with friends, and dog sitting with her roommate. Hannah intends to become an academic librarian, and a dream of hers is to one day live on a small farm.
