Gayla Murphy

AoA of Circulation


Hi, my name is Gayla Murphy.  I am the AOA of Circulation here in the BC Library.  I am a mother to my kiddo, AJ, and wifey to Luther.  I grew up in a small town in Louisiana called Bunkie.  I am known by some as the Malaysian Cajun.  I love to cook, write, and binge watch Law and Order SVU.  I am currently working on my Bachelor's in English Literature, so reading is an important part of my life.  Besides that fact, I actually really enjoy it.  I try to encourage myself to read new books, but I continue to go back to my old favorites often.  iREAD challenges me to try something new.  I love working at BC and being a part of our exceptional library and all it has to offer.

Ashley DeLaGarza

Technical Services Librarian


For those of you who aren’t familiar with me, I’m Ashley DeLaGarza and I work as the Technical Services Librarian here at BC. I’ve pretty much lived in the Gulf Coast region of Texas my entire life and currently find myself in the Pearland area along with my family and two dachshunds. Books have been a huge part of my life whether I am studying, being entertained, or working. I earned my Master’s of Library Science from the University of North Texas and my BA in history and theology from the University of St. Thomas. iRead was an idea that sprang from a class I took at UNT and I am so happy and proud to see how it has grown. iRead has given me the chance to form relationships with others on campus that I might not have met otherwise. It is my sincere hope that iRead provides an intimate forum to discuss books and create new friends for others on campus as well.
