"She truly cares about the feelings of others and how her actions may affect (them)," she commented. "Her work ethic and commitment for whatever she may be involved in is very strong.

She is flexible and is always willing to help others whenever or wherever she may be needed within the library. She truly spreads sunshine wherever she may be."
Lose serves as a mentor to the library's new student assistants, helping them adjust to the tasks at hand.
"No job is too menial and everyone is important to her. She has helped with several library displays, providing support and input as needed," the colleague continued. "She keeps a positive attitude, which spreads like wildfire."
