Droves of superheroes flew into the Lane Tech Center last night for some fun in front of our green screen after making costumes with the Fitton Center for Creative Arts. Everyone had a great time during Hamilton's Alive After 5 event!
Anyone who has worked with Robbie before knows how much effort she puts into the children's programs she does. She really cares that the kids have a good time and that there is plenty for them to do. Robbie recently went even more above and beyond with her tea party program. She made all of the food and drinks, brought her own tea cup collection for the kids to use, brought hand picked wild flowers and vases for each table, made life size paper dolls that the kids dressed in a relay race, decorated each individual chair...I could go on and on. I really admire Robbie for all she does and I really hope she wins! -Stephanie Shuler, Hamilton
Robbie is always working so hard on her programs, to ensure that they are perfect, down to the last detail. She certainly showed this dedication with her recent Royal Tea Party. Robbie planned for weeks, collecting beautiful china and teapots for the children to use, planning games and events, and making decorations. The tea parties that she throws are always a huge hit with the kids, and her hard work does not go unnoticed! - Amy Numrich, Hamilton
Robbie pours her heart and soul into programs for the Children's Department. For the Royal Tea Party this month, Robbie used a lot of ingenuity and creativity to make it an enjoyable time for the boys and girls who attended. She literally worked all morning setting up for the program that was over in maybe an hour. This is just one example of how hard Robbie works for programs. I am always impressed by Robbie's dedication and interaction with the children who come to the programs. - Wendy Pittman, Hamilton
I am nominating Robbie for Employee of the Month because she is hardworking, knowledgeable, and super creative. Robbie is very patron-centered, and always makes patrons feel welcome in the library. Her knowledge of the children’s collection allows her to answer reference questions quickly and efficiently. Programming is one of Robbie’s biggest strengths. For the recent “Royal Tea Party” program she created beautiful decorations, which made the program really special for everyone attending. The children who participated also really enjoyed the fun activities she developed. Robbie is a great asset to the library, and I am glad I get to work with her! - Celeste Swanson, Hamilton
Congratulations, Robbie! She wins her choice of a $50 gift card or 4 extra hours of vacation.
