Homecoming for New Rapid City Library Director

Terri Davis is returning home to the Black Hills when she assumes the role of Director of the Rapid City Public Library in August. Although born in Brookings, the Rapid City Journal reports that spent much of the 1990s as director of Deadwood's library. She came to Rapid City in 2000 during Greta Chapman's fifteen year tenure. Davis would serve as Chapman's assistant director, and then interim director during the months between Chapman's 2013 departure and Jim McShane's arrival. She moved to Australia in 2015.

Davis sees her first priority as meeting with the staff and learning what has changed with the library. Since her time at Rapid City Public Library, the library's maker space has grown considerably. Experience bags, board games, and video games are now part of the circulating collection. Earlier this year, the library's first floor was reorganized, with shelves being re-arranged and the nonfiction divided into the Bookstore Model.

Past library stories are linked through the Black Hills Knowledge Network's online news archive.
