Serving enthusiastically and continuously looking for ways to enrich the lives of Burleson’s library patrons are a few of the reasons Rebecca ‘Becky’ Propp was named the City of Burleson's employee of the quarter.
Becky greets every day and everyone with a huge smile on her face and makes it her mission to help the city’s youth learn and grow. As the city’s Youth Services Librarian she has opportunities to help mold some of the youngest library visitors and she is always working to make their experiences at the library better.
“She consistently creates wonderful programs and services for families at the library,” states her nomination form.
Becky brought the program, Girls, Inc., to Burleson. This program empowers and encourages young girls to learn about STEAM concepts. She has also created a Kindness Club that teaches children about compassion.
“Becky truly enjoys working with the children who come to programs and visit the library,” says her nomination form. “She is always one of the first to step up when other staff members need help assisting customers.”
Becky started with the city in August 2016 as the Children’s Services Librarian, in November 2017 she was promoted to Youth Services Librarian which expanded her role to include library teen programming.
Becky’s goal is to serve much more than just the individual.
“I want to make sure that I’m creating programs that not only meet the literacy needs of the children, but that are also fulfilling for their entire family,” stated Becky. “When individual families flourish, it contributes to the flourishing of the entire community. The library wants to help make Burleson a great place to live.”
Becky will be honored at the November 12 City Council meeting. The city's employee of the quarter award is based on an employee's efficiency, transparency, honesty, innovation and customer service, all of which make up the city's ethics statement.
