Maria Mendez, Acquisitions Specialist, has been chosen as the Yuma County Library District’s Employee of the Month for January 2016. This award is to recognize an employee that inspires us with their effort and attitude.
“Not only does Maria perform her job exceptionally well, she is a team player. She always avails herself to help others when they are in need of help. Whenever I am away from my desk or out sick she steadily assists Sherri in covering my department. She has also assisted circulation department on many occasion when they are shorthanded, as well as Sandy Gutierrez upstairs. She has helped decorate for Library Card Sign-up Month, Halloween, and helped me at my volunteer appreciation event last year. She has done all this extra work without asking for anything in return. She always has the best attitude toward helping others and answering any questions or resolving issues.”
Maria received a mounted certificate, a name plate in the book of her choice, an Employee of the Month pin, and her photo will be hung in the Main Library during the month of January. Congratulations Maria!
