STORY TIME INFORMATION: Marvelous mothers
Wednesday, May 4th at 10:30AM
May is here and so it is time to think about mothers and all that they do. What does yours do for you?
Just a reminder, there will be no story time next week!
The Board of Trustees will be meeting on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 at 7PM. The meeting agenda and announcement is posted here.
The Trustees of the Tucker Free Library invite community members to stop by the library May 17-22 to help celebrate STAFF APPRECIATION WEEK. “The trustees recognize how difficult it can be to provide such a high level of customer service on a daily basis, yet our staff members are always coming up with ways to improve the library; their pride and commitment to our facility is evident when you talk to them,” reports Patti N. Osgood, Chair of the Board of Trustees.
“I try to make the customer feel like this is a friendly and familiar environment. I want my patrons to think of the Tucker Free Library as the only place they would ever want to go for all their future literary needs.” Joshua Colby
Most of our staff members have worked at the library for over 3 years, including Joshua Colby a junior at the NH Institute of Art. Molly Glover and Hugh Russell, students at John Stark Regional High School, have also worked at the library since evening and weekend hours were expanded. These three employees came to the library as children and possess an appreciation for the public library as a civic institution critical to our community. “I see all three of these kids serving as trustees of their town libraries in the future,” says Osgood. These young adults are the face of our weekend staff, successfully building a following with community members who can’t make it to the library during weekday hours.
“Many things make the Tucker Free Library special in my eyes, but it is our flawless service staff that really pushes the boundaries of spectacularity over the edge.” Hugh Russell
Denise Getts, who has been at the library for 11 years, has single-handedly saved taxpayers thousands of dollars by assuming most of the computer management and maintenance responsibilities. She has also been an avid promoter of the eContent component of our library program. Erin Longan has built a very successful youth department; bringing in and building the next generation of library supporters. Lynne Lawrence has transformed our evening services, offering thoughtful book recommendations for many of our patrons. Our current substitute staff includes Donna Plante, Penny Petkiewicz, and Melina Jackson. These individuals help out at special events, filling in during scheduled vacations, and helping out at the last minute call-in when an unexpected absence occurs.
“Building a successful program for our library involves managing its many components from the facility to the staff to the governing board,” states Lynn M. Piotrowicz, library director. “I feel that the individuals who work on the front line of customer service every day are the key to what has made this library the vibrant resource that it has become during the last eleven years of my tenure at TFL. Please join us by expressing your gratitude to your favorite staff members during this week!”
