Whether she’s pushing literacy at the Filipino Fiesta or wearing her library hat at the San Francisco Giants Summer Camp, Christy Aguirre gets around. Amid this flurry of activity, which includes visiting schools, making presentations at parent-teacher meetings and speaking with the media, the Southgate Branch
supervisor for the Sacramento Public Library found herself receiving national recognition.
The editorial staff of Library Journal, a highly regarded monthly news magazine for librarians, chose the South Sacramento dynamo as a Mover & Shaker of 2013 in a national library award selection.
Aguirre, selected because of her commitment to meeting the needs of the people she serves, was among 50 outstanding library professionals honored in the magazine’s March 15 issue.
No stranger to recognition, Aguirre was named the Outstanding Librarian in Support of Literacy by the California Library Association in 2012.
