July 15, 2019  Employee of the Month - July 2019Congratulations to Melanie, OC Public Libraries’ employee of the month. Starting out as a clerk, Melanie learned the basics, but because of her exceptional customer service skills and attention to detail quickly became the lead clerk. Now, in the position of Library Assistant, Melanie is moving beyond the front desk, creating off-site tech programming with a local Senior Center, and creating an adult crafting program on-site where there hasn’t been one.
