Who’s Awesome! – Diana Lasky – April 2023

Congratulations, Diana Lasky!

Diana Lasky, administrative assistant to the director, is HCPL’s April Who’s Awesome! winner.  Diana was one of twelve nominations for the honor this month.  Each month a winner is selected by random drawing. A quarterly winner and nominator receive a small prize in addition to the recognition.  

Kelly Powell, HCPL business manager, nominated Diana saying, “Diana went above and beyond to make sure the library volunteers had a wonderful day. She made certificates, and a fruit tray with a fancy bird, and put fun little dots on the tables.”

Diana received two additional nominations this month. Main circulation clerk Debi Strubler had this to say, “I have worked at the library for almost 10 years. I have always seen Diana working diligently no matter the time of day and/or at the end of the week. She works with high intensity each day. The taxpayers can rest assured that this steward of the library uses the taxes for her salary afforded to the library in a very efficient way every day.”

Another nomination stated, “Diana did an awesome job planning and coordinating the April 20th Volunteer Recognition Reception. From the minute she was asked to plan something she got right to work. She designed, printed, addressed and mailed the invitations. She designed and printed certificates of appreciation and found folders to display the certificates. She created the menu, bought and set up the refreshments, even going so far as to watch a YouTube video to create a swan out of an apple for the center of the fruit tray. She stayed throughout the reception greeting and interacting with all the volunteers and she cleaned up afterward. She made blog and social media posts about the event.” 

Diana started her career at HCPL as a youth assistant in August of 2007. She was promoted to youth services director in January of 2018 and became administrative assistant to the director in January of 2023.
