Congratulations to Shannon Callen, the CPRL May Employee of the Month!

Shannon is the Pamlico Young Adult Librarian and has been working in the Pamlico Library on a part time basis. During this time she has processed 1800 new library card requests for the Craven Pamlico Region and created 16 YA programs/events for Pamlico and the Region. I have been impressed by her exemplary customer service skills, organizational proficiency and her consistent attention to details.  Pamlico has received many compliments from patrons regarding her customer service and willingness to assist.  She is a fabulous employee, a huge asset to CPRL and is so deserving of this award and recognition.

Congratulations to Vanceboro’s Melanie Germon who is CPRL’s first Employee of the Month Recipient! 

Melanie was recognized as the April 2021 Employee of the Month for stepping up to the plate in many ways to benefit not only library patrons, but also her co-workers. She has stepped outside of her comfort zone to facilitate a book discussion group and is willing to learn new skills and try new tasks. Recently she created new genre related bookmarks and a new tri-fold brochure which have been great additions for her library. She is always willing to maneuver her schedule to help out a fellow coworker and has donated many new titles from her family's collection to help the young adult and juvenile sections at her library have more appeal to patrons. Her hard work and dedication are greatly appreciated. Thank you, Melanie!
