March 2018 Employee Excellence Award Winner Teen Librarian Jen McGrath

The Employee Excellence Award committee is pleased to present this award to Jen. Nominations received for Jen expressed that she “surpasses  expectations” by putting in extra time and effort into the teen programming. “Jen is limited by a one room area to provide all the services she provides – homework help, books, video game playing, and a place to play cards, to name a few. However, this does not deter Jen; she is constantly looking to make the space more teen friendly”. Nominations further recognized Jen stating “You can just see from speaking with Jen how much she loves what she does” and further that “Jen embodies all that librarians and library paraprofessionals are – approachable, creative, helpful, enthusiastic, passionate, and outgoing.”
