Donna Silvas

Donna Silvas was selected as the May 2010 Employee of the Month because of her outstanding customer service. She is a dedicated employee who exemplifies the six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.

Donna came to work for the Porterville Public Library as a Library Assistant in April 2007.  She loves serving the diverse informational needs of the Porterville community. Donna’s work merits recognition because it is above and beyond regular duty. She is flexible and eager to work any shift as needed.  Donna has an interest in learning new things and expanding her knowledge in all areas of public library services.

Donna is extremely creative and puts a lot of effort into our monthly displays located throughout the library. She is especially resourceful in this activity and often brings in her own personal items for the displays.  Donna has received many letters of gratitude from patrons for her outstanding customer service and exceptionally creative displays.  Donna has said on many occasions that working at the library is her “Dream Job.” 

Donna was born and raised in Porterville. She attended Alta Vista School and was a graduate of the last “pure” class of Porterville Union High School, class of 1970.

Donna has been married to Ruben Silvas for 34 years, they have five children: Delia, Penni, Paul, Amanda, and Deidre. They have eight grandchildren and their ninth grandchild is due in September.
