With heavy hearts, it is time to say farewell and good luck to another member of our team this week. April Martinez has been your librarian here at TCC NW for seven years now. As a testament to April’s dedication and ability, we are losing her to a well-deserved promotion. She leaves us to become the new Assistant Director at the J. Ardis Bell Library, NE Campus.
Conducting countless seminars for students, April was a familiar and friendly face around campus for everyone. She has made her mark here as a “go to” resource for both our students and our staff. If you had a question that needed an answer or some research materials that needed to be found—April had the gift of ‘tip tapping’ two seconds on a keyboard and somehow finding exactly what you needed.
April was passionate about our reading festival, stepping up to bat each year to play an integral role in its planning, organizing, and execution. We are very proud of this event. Every year we invite the children of our community to our library and try our best to encourage a lasting love of reading within them. It’s an event we pour our hearts into—no one more so than April.
To quote a colleague “if you have a friend in April, you have a friend for life”. From everyone here at the Walsh Library, we will miss you.
