Treasures of the Library
Our focus in this installment of a continuing series of articles on the Library's treasures is on Ada Rodriguez, Data Processing Programming Trainee, a staff member since 1983.
Addie began her career with the Library in the Catalog Department. Over the years, she continually assumed added responsibilities. Earlier this year, she transferred to the Technology Training Center where she sharpened her skills. She now shares with the public her computer expertise as a staff member of the new Victoria Technology Center.
Along with her supervisor, she now is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Center: scheduling, patron guidance and support, and Internet/data processing software troubleshooting. Additionally, she is designing a lesson plan-utilizing computer technology-for a workshop for patrons wishing to develop their typing skills.
Addie was born in Yauco, Puerto Rico, and studied Bilingual Secretarial Science at Ponce Regional College-UPR. She continued her education at Essex County College, majoring in Computer Programming. She attends classes to keep updated on new programs and applications.
In 1997 and 1999 Addie Rodriguez received a proclamation from the Newark City Council for her volunteer work with the Hispanic Community.
