If you haven’t been in the Boulder City Library recently, you are likely to see a lot of new faces. We have had staff move and more are retiring over the next few months. Let me catch you up on some of the changes.
Linda B. is our newest substitute at the circulation desk. If you ever spent any time at the Hacienda, you may remember Linda from the gift shop. Linda works a regular shift every week and fills in when other people have to be gone.
Becca W. is also new to our circulation department. However, she is no stranger to libraries as she has been working at the library in Searchlight for several years. Becca will help us keep the circulation desk running, and will be helping with overdue notices and in ordering books for our McNaughton collection.
Dorothy V. and Jodi K. are both new youth services assistants. They are both excited to get involved in story times, craft programs and other events in the youth department.
Robin B. is our new assistant custodian. Most of his work happens before we open the doors each morning. Among other things, Robin is the person responsible for keeping the bathrooms nice and shiny and the floors mopped.
How is it that we have all these openings? Only one of these positions, the circulation substitute, is a brand-new position at the library. We have a total of three people who help us by filling in when there are gaps due to vacations, jury duty, sick leave, etc. The other positions are filling openings that are left due to vacancies. Pat B., who has been with the Boulder City Library since 1989, retired in the middle of March. In the coming weeks, we will have yet another change to the staff. Carolyn R. joined the library staff in 1986. Carolyn will be retiring the middle of May. We don’t have a replacement for Carolyn, but watch the paper for the announcement of another opening at the Boulder City Library.
Join me in wishing the best to the staff members who are moving on and in welcoming all of our new library family members.
