Michelle Oswell, library director

Michelle, a member of the Curtis community since 2012, is the library administrator, orders print materials for the library collection, and manages all electronic resources and the website. 

Previously a music librarian at Rutgers University and Haverford College, Michelle holds a Ph.D. in musicology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a master’s degree in library science from Drexel University, and a bachelor’s degree in music theory from the University of Delaware.

Michelle no longer plays a modern orchestral instrument, but will play pretty much any early wind instrument you put in front of her.  When not tormenting her dog with high-pitched instruments, she enjoys reading classic literature and taking her dog, Callie, on hiking trips in the area.
