LEA Renamed LEC -- Library Employee Committee
By Hong Wang, Reference

Starting in October 2004, The Library Employee Association (LEA) has changed into the Library Employee Committee (LEC). The committee is currently working on a draft charge and operation procedures. In past years, thanks to the hard work of LEA members and the generous contributions and the great support of library employees, this group has contributed to the wellness of individuals on behalf of our library employees. We have recognized retired people, welcomed new employees, recognized milestones such as weddings and births, and sent gifts to employees’ families whose close relatives have passed away. We have also hosted the Holiday Party and Library Student Picnic every year, and the committee has held the well-known Halloween and Valentine Day bake sales, where we have received generous donations from library employees.

LEC will continue those obligations, with the goal of providing services our library employees needs. The current committee members are Julie Thomas (Chair), Pairlee Berry, Anne Bradley, Lorraine Saiz, Lillie Jones, and Hong Wang. Our next event is the Halloween Bake Sale at 9:30 –11:30 AM on Thursday, October 28, 2004 in the 5th floor lounge. Still depending upon library employees’ support for all our good work, we will be accepting donations at the sale.
