Congratulations, Steven Schifcar!
Steven Schifcar, head of maintenance and grounds, is HCPL’s August winner for Who’s Awesome! Steven was one of thirteen nominations for the honor this month.
Trevor Smith, HCPL’s Systems Administrator, nominated Steven stating, “Steve is always happy to help no matter what I need. Thanks especially for helping stain the laser exhaust box.”
Diana Lasky, administrative assistant to HCPL’s director, also nominated Steven writing, “Steve has been a tremendous help with the WaterStep Shoe Drive and the transporting of diorama displays. Not only has he transported shoes from the branches, but he has also moved the shoes up and down to my office. Even though all this increased his work load, he has been readily available to assist. I also appreciate the work that Steve does to keep the grounds looking clean and neat. It provides a good image to the public. Unless you come in early, you might not know that Steve does regular ground trash pickup as well as watering flowers, mowing and more. Thanks, Steve, for being awesome! “
He was also nominated in February by Sara Deatrick, the Elizabeth lead circ associate. Sara said, “(Steve) switched out the faucets that have been a pain for 10 years! It makes the day so much nicer to not get splashed and have to clean up puddles by the faucet. “
Steven has been with HCPL for 10 years joining the staff in July of 2013 as head of maintenance and grounds and serving as the library’s courier taking materials between branches each day.
Each month a winner is selected by random drawing. Other staff members nominated in August were Sarah Dorton, Bob Ohlrich, Kelli Witsman, Liz Dennis, Kathy Fisher, Pat Schwartz, Carla Ward, Debbie McClanahan, Jessica Stroud, Trevor Smith and Diana Lasky.
