At the Smithsonian

Sara Cardello

Sara Cardello serves as the Head of Education at the Smithsonian Libraries and Archives. She develops resources for Prek-12 students using SLA’s more than two million library volumes and 44,000 cubic feet of archival records. Her work involves taking these academic, delicate, and at times inaccessible collections and turning them into online and in-person sensory rich environments featuring inclusive use of sight, sound, and touch. Sara’s been with the Smithsonian in Museum Education capacities since 2012. She holds a B.A. in Art History and an M.A. in Art History and Museum Education.
