Mara Benitez Honored as City's Employee of the Month for October

SEGUIN, Texas - Congratulations to our Employee of the Month for October 2021 - Mara Benitez!!
Mara is a Library Assistant/Adult Services Coordinator at the Seguin Public Library. In her award nomination, Mara was praised for her dedication to providing excellent service and events at the library for patrons and the community to enjoy. Her joyful, upbeat attitude and the care she has for people who come into the library each day does not go unseen. She consistently goes above and beyond in all tasks she undertakes, whether it's assisting a patron with research or rounding up cats and dogs running in the library - all the while making those around her feel respected, important and cared for. It's not unusual that her events at the Library fill up quickly and have long waiting lists with people hoping to get in.
