General Staff Award

  
    The Friends of the TCU Library presented the second Library General Staff Recognition Award to Karen Tjarks at the annual staff and Friends luncheon earlier this year. Karen joined the library staff in 1984 as part of the retrospective project and later went to work in the special formats cataloging department. As a member of the systems office staff since 1994, she installs and maintains computers and assists in staff training. She was recognized by co-workers and library users for enthusiasm, flexibility and extreme patience. Karen does not just put a computer on a desk but stays close by and works with the individual until their comfort level and satisfaction are achieved. She is able to make each individual feel that their immediate problem is the most important task on her agenda. She makes an outstanding contribution to the effective operation of the Library.
