DRT Library Welcomes New Reference Librarian
The Daughters of the Republic of Texas Library is pleased to announce the appointment of Chuck Tucker as reference librarian. Mr. Tucker began in his new position on Monday, November 2. He replaces Mrs. Stephanie Boothby, who vacated the position following the birth of her daughter.
Mr. Tucker is a native of Columbia, Missouri, although as a self-described military brat he lived in various places while growing up. However, as a child he spent summers with his grandparents in San Antonio, and he has now lived here for the past twenty-five years. As a result of these two circumstances, Mr. Tucker considers himself a native of the Alamo City.
Mr. Tucker has a Bachelor of Arts degree in interdisciplinary studies with a minor in English from the University of Texas at San Antonio. He also has a master’s degree in library science and information technology and a graduate certificate in library management, both from the University of North Texas.
His most recent library experience was at a neighborhood branch of the San Antonio Public Library. While he was officially a departmental systems analyst, Mr. Tucker took on additional projects at the library, including outreach activities; the design and implementation of computer classes; and collections development and management. He also implemented library programs specifically for teens, including Guitar Hero and Wii tournaments.
Mr. Tucker and his wife of eighteen years have a thirteen-year-old daughter. He describes his main passions as family, faith, and golf.
Welcome, Mr. Tucker, to the DRT Library!
