Yvette Hamilton began her professional career in library services at Cleveland Public Libraries. In early 2018 she was named the Library Service Manager of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Hill-District Branch. Before joining the CLP, she worked for more than 20 years in library services in the Greater Cleveland Ohio Area. Yvette feels her success in librarianship is a direct product of steller librarian mentors who provided her with dynamic career contributions.
Yvette graduated from North Carolina Central University’s School of Library and Information Science with her MLS degree, and she is currently a doctoral candidate in the area of Public Administration. In addition, she had the privilege to study Library Management at (NYLA) New York Library Association Guilderland NY, graduating with a specialized certification in Library Management. She also is a member of the American Library Association, The Black Caucus of the American Library Association, The Cleveland HBCU Alumni Association, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., and Phi Delta Kappa National Sorority.
Yvette currently resides in Pittsburgh with her husband. She has two daughters: a junior English major and an incoming college freshman majoring in commercial music with minor in business. Her first book, A Resource Guide for Aspiring College Students, will be released in late 2018.
