Library staff honored with service award
The city of Newberg announced recently that the winners of the Outstanding Service Award for the month of July are the staff of the Newberg Public Library. Since early March, the library has been under construction and was unexpectedly without an elevator for the month of June. During this time, library staff made daily adjustments in their work to accommodate the construction. They answered questions from the public, always keeping a positive message, and helped move library materials up and down the stairs on foot during the elevators downtime. The city lauded staff members Amanda Lamb, Audrey Smith, Cynthia Swanson, Denise Reilly, Jean Schuchardt, KLyn Hann, Laurie Lieggi, Lori Biever-Launder, Mary Lynn Thomas, Patrick Tompkins, Rea Andrew, Rosa Olivares, Susan Easterly-Eisenberg and Terri Stewart.
