Jennifer Umbstead (Fairfield) is Lane's October 2014 Employee of the Month. Michael Winstead nominated Jennifer and gushed at length:
"I would like to nominate Jennifer Umbstead for October's Employee Of The Month for several reasons. On countless occasions I have seen Jennifer go out of her way to help a patron in need, no matter how big or small the request is. Jennifer has a way of making each patron feel that their need is of the utmost importance and she will go well out of her way to settle anyone’s problem to have them leave feeling like they received not only her undivided attention but the best treatment she could give. Many patrons ask for her by name because they know that Jennifer’s keen attention to detail will take care of them like they were an old friend. I have personally seen Jennifer find lost holds, leave late for lunch, give an extra needed hand after she has clocked out, or find a book on the shelves that couldn’t be located by a patron. I am humbled by Jennifer’s selfless demeanor, her kindness to her coworkers and patrons alike, as well as her positive attitude. She is an absolute asset to the Fairfield library as well as the Lane Libraries system as a whole and a real role model to her fellow employees."
Congratulations Jennifer! She wins her choice of a $50 gift card or 4 extra hours of vacation.
