Tuesday night, the library celebrated Dennis McCarthy, Building Engineer, who was named 2022 Glen Ellyn Community Awards Library Employee of the Year!
Hosted by the Glen Ellyn Chamber of Commerce, the Glen Ellyn Community Awards recognizes who and what makes Glen Ellyn wonderful. Each year, honorees are determined by nominations submitted through a publicly accessible form on the Chamber website.
Library Director Dawn Bussey introduced Dennis at the ceremony. “Dennis is an integral part of our team. Throughout all the difficult projects and tasks that come his way, Dennis shares a smile and a happy demeanor. You know the time and effort it takes to maintain your home or your business building. Now imagine if that building was 52,000 square feet, had an 80 foot parking lot, and welcomed over 16,000 people per month! ” Another colleague described Dennis as “a friendly guy who is always willing to help whenever issues arise, and a good storyteller on top of that!”
