After nearly 10 years as the director of communications at the Enoch Pratt Library, Roswell Encina has declared today his last day. Tuesday, he will begin his new position as a senior adviser at the Library of Congress.
Encina, 46, will join former Pratt Library CEO Carla Hayden, who was appointed as the librarian of Congress in July. She will be sworn-in on Sept. 14 by Chief Justice of the United States John G. Roberts Jr.
“I’m very fortunate and honored that Dr. Hayden has chosen me,” Encina said. “It’s bittersweet. It’s a lot of exciting and sad emotions going on through one day.”
