Kathy Hollahan and Dawn Bussey.Kathy Hollahan is one of those library employees whose work and talent occur behind the scenes. Yet her work impacts every person walking through the doors of the library, as she is responsible for all the signage both inside and outside the building.

Kathy has created a brand that the community recognizes, particularly through The Guide, the library’s quarterly mailing which is delivered to all the households in the Village. The Guide is designed and produced under her direction.

Kathy has worked for the Glen Ellyn Public Library for almost 30 years in a variety of different roles, going back to the days at the Crescent Boulevard location.

Although the public may not be able to put a face to her name (until now), Kathy’s contributions to making the library a great community resource is invaluable.

Kathy received her Library Employee of the Year Award at the Glen Ellyn Chamber of Commerce’s Community Awards Breakfast on March 3. Upon receiving her award, Kathy said, “There are many library employees who are deserving of this recognition; I am honored at being selected. The Glen Ellyn Public Library has a caring and talented staff who work diligently to offer the best possible service to our members and the community. It’s really my privilege to work alongside them.”

Congratulations Kathy and thank you for your years of great service.
