In June 2019, Andy Moul, Senior Library Associate Specialist in Reader Services at the John Hay Library, will retire after 39 years with the Brown University Library.
Andy began as a shelver at the Rockefeller Library in 1980, after which he became a door guard. From there, he worked in Circulation at the Rock until moving to the Hay in 1994.
While at the Library, Andy had the opportunity to curate an Origami exhibit with Sociology Professor James Sakoda. He also played on the Library softball team with his step-daughter, Ricca Gaus. During the late 1980s and into the 1990s, Andy took part in numerous craft bazaars in Sayles Hall. He also met his first wife in the Rock lobby. They were together for over 20 years.
Upon retirement Andy plans to move to Hopkinton, RI where his wife, Rebecca Ladd, and he have a home located next to the Moscow Brook. He looks forward to spending time gardening, paper folding, and walking the couple’s five dogs.
The Library offers its deeply felt gratitude to Andy for his years of service and our best wishes for a happy retirement.
