"I would like to nominate Charlie Patrick as employee of the month. Having worked closely with Charlie on many maintenance related projects, he never ceases to amaze me with his ability to assess the problem at hand, find an often times budget friendly solution, and complete projects with the best interests of Lane Library in mind. His job skills, good humor, and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty when addressing "daily exigencies", make him a most valuable asset to Lane Library."
