Colyn Wohlmut is a Librarian at the Sutro Library, California State Library. While working as a curatorial assistant at the Stanford University Libraries, she earned her MLIS from San José State University in 2009. Her active study of bookbinding inspired her to pursue a MA in Conservation from Camberwell College, University of the Arts, London which was awarded in 2011. Her experience at Camberwell taught her that she was better suited for librarianship than conservation, and she ran the London Contemporary Dance School Library for two years before deciding to return to the United States. Her experience in bookbinding, conservation, and the history of the book enables her to lead preservation and disaster planning initiatives at Sutro while also serving to interpret conservation issues for Sutro and State Library leadership.
