Treasures of the Library

Our focus in this installment of a continuing series of articles on the Library’s treasures is on Deloris W. Moses, Principal Librarian, a staff member for more than 22 years.

Deloris W. Moses

Deloris, a native of Summerville, South Carolina, began her career with the Library as an intern at the Weequahic Branch. After graduating from Kean College with a degree in Library Science and Elementary Education, she was assigned to Weequahic as Children’s Librarian. During the years that followed, she worked at the Springfield and Roseville branches, then lastly at Clinton, where she is Branch Manager. Deloris is a charismatic force with teachers and students of all ages. She is a co-curator for the current African-American Firsts exhibition and has served as branch coordinator for such programs as the Summer Reading Challenge, Project PALS, Kindergarten Trip, and Club Success.

She has managed several grants pertaining to branch and community concerns. The one that left an unforgettable mark on her was the HUD grant, which gave birth to on-site libraries at five housing complexes.

Deloris is an active member of First Timothy Baptist Church: she sings in two choirs, serves on committees, and coordinates various programs. Because of her involvement in the community, she has become a well-loved ambassador for the Library.
