On September 7, 2011 six Libraries staff were awarded champion medals for finishing in first in the Drexel Employee Olympics running/walking relay challenge.
When Henry Taylor graduates from high school next summer, he’ll be one step ahead of his peers. Taylor, a Kensington senior, is a participant in the Philadelphia Youth Network’s WorkReady Program, which matches over 5,000 young people to summer employment opportunities and service programs, where they can build skills to prepare for their eventual careers.
Taylor was matched with Drexel University, and began work in the Libraries in June 2011. Since, the enthusiastic youth has worked hard to build upon his professional skills.
“This is Henry’s first job, and we have an exciting opportunity to help him discover and build essential skills that will help him to become a successful professional,” Library Reserve Coordinator, Gina Cacace, who works closely with Henry, said.

In addition to Library staff, a student worker is also recognized for his/her dedication to the Libraries.
Over 30 people attended the May 12th ceremony, held in W. W. Hagerty’s Bookmark Café, which recognized library staff Gina Cacace, Sarah Daub, Meg Finney, Ellie Goldberg and Emily Misser.
