Elleona Budd

Elleona Budd, a 21 year old Portland State Undergraduate who identifies as non-binary, has been learning various parts of library work — everything from helping regular patrons at the St. Johns Library find titles, to leading outreach work in the Black community — for the past three years. As a Black Cultural Library Advocate, Elleona is joining other staff from around the library to identify ways to improve collections and services for the Black community. Sometimes, that means creating library displays featuring poetry by queer and trans people of color. Other times, it means organizing large-scale events to provide opportunities for discussion about topics such as the African diaspora. Elleona loves all things childish, whether that be humor, books, or kiddos themselves, and like Peter Pan, they hope to never grow up.
