National Library Workers Day: Libraries work because we do!


Tuesday, April 9, 2024 is National Library Workers Day (NLWD), a time to recognize library professionals for their expertise and leadership skills in transforming lives and communities through education and lifelong learning. The day also reminds the public that library workers serve as community compasses that lead users to endless opportunities for engagement, enrichment, and development. 

To show appreciation for library workers and the work they do throughout the year, library users are invited to Submit at Star by providing a testimonial about a favorite library employee at Check out these 10 Ways to Celebrate National Library Workers Day

Don't forget to stop by the Sue Shaffer Learning Commons & Library to say thanks to the amazing Library Staff! I'm lucky to have such an amazing team to work with! There are our two full-time Library Assistants, Nik & Peggy who help make sure that all of your circulation and trivia needs are met, Sonja & Jackie our two part-time Library Clerks who aid in keeping everything running smoothly during the mornings and evenings, Ivana, Zack, & Seren our dedicated student workers, and even a few volunteers from the UCC Scholars program! Without this team you we wouldn't be able to provide you the stellar service, warm welcomes, kind words, informed assistance, and physical and digital collections that we do. 

Thank you to my amazing library staff for all you do!
