Mandy has worked in the library for two semesters. "I
really appreciate that there is a well-developed staff community at the
library. I notice that staff have a genuine concern for patrons," she
said, adding that everyone continuously works to try to improve the library.
“Mandy’s strengths are
her friendliness and pleasant demeanor,” said Jason Skoog, one of Mandy’s
supervisors. “Mandy even provides a little extra service by asking patrons about
their day and wishing them well,” Skoog added.
When she is not busy working in the library, Mandy likes to
dance, cook, bake, travel, and spend time outdoors with her family and friends.
The last great book she read was The
Senior Spotlight: Janelle Mathews
Janelle Mathews is a senior English literature major from
Boscobel who has been working at the Todd Wehr Memorial Library for
three years. Janelle is minoring in both Spanish and environmental studies.
“Janelle is our most
experienced senior and we will definitely miss her competent, friendly service
at the front desk. She always goes above and beyond to provide patrons with an
excellent library experience,” said Liz Bass, one of Janelle’s supervisors.
Janelle said what she most likes about working at the library is
"how laid back and relaxed it is" as well as the staff. She also
likes getting the chance to see what new books come into the library.
In her free time,
she likes to do anything related to tennis and likes to read historical
fiction books. After she graduates, Janelle hopes to go into the work
force. She has already applied and interviewed for multiple jobs.
