Employee of the Quarter: Linda Dawson
Congratulations to Linda Dawson, manager of the Wilson Branch, on being named the first MCLS Employee of the Quarter!
In her branch, Linda hosts an adult book club, runs Bunny’s Book Club (a lap baby story and craft time), and holds frequent story and craft times for kids of all ages. She also works diligently to establish connections with Rivercrest Public Schools and The Delta School; she works hard to make sure all students have access to a library card and library services.
Linda actively promotes the Wilson Branch and the MCLS in the community: you’ll find her ready to welcome trick-or-treaters, dressed as Mrs. Claus for stories and pictures, and manning a booth at town fairs. It is this constant effort to try new things and welcome new faces to the library that prompted director Walters to honor her this quarter.
Linda is about to establish a Friends of the Wilson Public Library group: go see her to volunteer!
The Employee of the Quarter is a new initiative established by the Director and comes with a monetary award. Great work Linda, and congratulations!
