About the Program

Category: Libraries (Best in Category)

Year: 2022

Each year, San Bernardino County honors one full-time employee from each County department with an Award for Excellence. Part-time employees are not eligible to receive this award. In 2021, the Library department resolved to implement a part-time Outstanding Service Award in recognition that the library is comprised of only 92 full-time employees, and 191 part-time employees. With this information in mind, the Library Administrative team decided to create and implement the part-time employee award to ensure its part-time staff were also recognized for their outstanding service. Each year during the Library’s Staff Development Day, the management team recognizes the honoree of the full-time Award for Excellence. In 2021, the department was proud to also announce and present the Outstanding Service Award to the selected part-time nominee. For the first time in San Bernardino County Library history, both a part-time and full-time staff received recognition from their Department for demonstrating excellence in their work performance and helping the Library achieve the Countywide Vision. In providing equal opportunity for both part-time and full-time staff to be honored, the Library was able to recognize and affirm that the hard work and dedication put forth by all employees are both valued and appreciated, in addition to the acknowledgement that each individual contributes to the overall success of the Library System.
