Culture Change Initiative: Recognition & Rewards

Thank You Program

About the program:

Designed to offer a personal, timely, and public way for library staff to express appreciation to colleagues, no matter the department, division, or rank.

How it works:

  • Go to the Library Personnel office to pick up a blank thank you card
  • Complete the Thank You form to tell us who you're thanking and why
  • Write your thank you note and give your card to the intended recipient!
  • At the end of each month, the information from the Thank You forms will be collected and displayed on the wall outside the Business Office.
  • At the end of each quarter, recipients of the thank you cards will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 token of appreciation, which will be automatically added to the recipient's paycheck


  • All staff are encouraged to write thank you notes to any other library staff member. At this time, student workers are not eligible to participate in the program.
  • This program is not anonymous. Please be sure to complete the Thank You form and include your name, the recipients name, and the reason for the thank you.
  • There is no limit to the number of thank you notes you can give!
