February 2012 Employee of the Month

Yuliana Andrade

Parks & Leisure Services Department - Library

Yuliana Andrade was first introduced to public library work through the CSET Youth Program in 2005. After that program ended, Yuli was hired on as a part-time Library Aide in June of 2006. In March of 2011, she was chosen to fill a full-time Library Assistant position.

Yuli is a team player and is willing to flex her schedule as necessary to help other divisions in her department with activities like Step-Up events, Kid’s Day, and Junior Giants Baseball. She is actively involved in programming inside and outside the library. Yuliana has conducted several presentations for Homework Help, assisted staff with school visits to promote Summer Reading programs, and has conducted library tours.  She organized and promoted our 2011 Banned Book Week. Yuli uses her bilingual skills to help connect with and serve our Hispanic population.

Yuliana has a pleasant outgoing personality and gets along well with her co-workers.  She eagerly takes on new responsibilities as assigned. Yuliana is currently assisting staff in conducting monthly computer classes for the public and has received many positive compliments from the students. Yuliana performs with a high level of energy and contributes extra efforts in all aspects of her assignments.  She was asked to meet with co-workers for cross training of library duties and exceeded our expectations by completing this task ahead of schedule.

Yuliana is committed to professional development and has completed many Info-People online training sessions. She is currently taking online classes through the State Center Community College District to attain her Library Technology Certificate.  Besides being a dedicated Library staff member by fulfilling her assigned duties and responsibilities, Yuli goes above and beyond by promoting the Library in new ways and accepting the associated work into her routine. Her most recent success is the Library’s Facebook page.  Within just a few months of creation, the Porterville Library’s Facebook page had more likes than Tulare County Library’s Facebook page and Tulare City Library’s Facebook page combined.  In order to keep postings current and responses timely, she sometimes manages the content from home on her own time. 

Yuli is an excellent example of investing in individuals when hiring employees for the City. When our individual employees, like Yuli, are successful, their respective teams, divisions, and departments are on the road to success. Our City organization will prosper greatly when we invest in and reap the rewards of employees like Yuliana.
