Robin Stevens Le Mars Public Library Employee of the Month
Nominated by Shirley Taylor   February 2018 Chamber Employee of the month…Robin Stevens   Robin Stevens joined the Library on July 25, 2001.  Since that time she has filled many rolls in the organization, including assisting with Children’s programs, customer service, working with newspapers and magazines and processing new books.  Robin is also a book repair ninja!  She can take a book that has been roughed up and with a little glue and “Robin Magic” return the item to like new condition. But Robin’s biggest achievement has been spearheading the move of 30,000 items out of the Library before the new renovation began. Robin researched the best method for packing books and labeling boxes for the 6,000 items that went into storage.  She devised a plan to pack and label boxes so that the 24,000 items going to the Eagles Club would be moved to the correct floor and placed in the correct spot to be unpacked. In addition to planning “How” the books would be stored or moved, she organized “Who” did the work.  Robin coordinated the volunteers that started boxing on March 21st.  She organized 33 different volunteers as they gave 329 hours of work to move the collection. And this was only half of the job!  In November the collection had to be boxed up and brought back to the newly renovated Library.  Starting in early November Robin once again organized 35 volunteers as they gave another 355 hours of time to box the collection and organize the books on the shelves before opening day. While all this boxing and organizing was happening Robin also helped prepare for the sale of excess Library property.  Along with the help from Shay Gant and other staff members, Robin raised over $3,000 for the building project with this sale.  And Robin only works 24-27 hours per week!   Robin’s efforts made the Library relocation proceed smoothly and brings to mind this poem….     THERE are two kinds of people on earth today;    Just two kinds of people, no more I say.     Not the sinner and saint, for its well understood,     The good are half bad, and the bad are half good.     No, the two kinds of people on earth I mean,     Are the people who lift, and the people who lean.     (Paraphrased from a poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox) Robin Stevens is a person who “Lifts”….and more importantly does so with a smile that encourages all those around her to keep working as hard as she is!  Thank you for all that you do Robin.
