Did you know that Tuesday April 5, 2022 was National Library Workers Day - a part of National Library Week. It’s a day we recognize the valuable contributions made by all Library workers, especially our own library staff members who continue to work hard to support our school, research, and hospital communities every day. Whether they are making journals, e-books and databases available to the public, promoting library services and engaging with our communities online, answering questions at the front desk, ensuring our physical spaces are clean and welcoming, protecting our collections, or participating in a variety of other remote services, our library staff members continue to dedicate their time and energy to ensure that the Mount Sinai community is supported.

On behalf of the Mount Sinai community who continue to share how much these resources and services mean to them, I wanted to express thanks and gratitude for the exceptional work that all our team members put in day in and out to keep our libraries going:


  • Chandra Weaver joined the Levy Library team in 1986 (yes that’s over 35 years!) as a library assistant supporting our interlibrary loans unit and continues to oversee the daily operations of our borrowing service to this day. You can also findChanda at the Levy Library front desk helping patrons with a myriad of questions from printing to book recommendations.

  • Jessica Walker joined the Levy Library team in 2008 as one of our Circulation Services library assistants. Jessica helps to ensure that library physical spaces, equipment, and facilities are maintained, helps answer questions at the front, and occasionally brings in candy for our patrons!

  • Luke Clinton joined the Mount Sinai West/Mount Sinai Morningside Library team in 2018 as our Library OperationsCoordinator. You can find Luke managing our library spaces at MountSinai West and Morningside, and supporting both in-person and online patron inquiries. Luke also supports the daily lending operations for interlibrary loan services providing a valuable services to our shared resources network.

  • Terrell Artis joined the Levy Library team in 2001 as a Library Assistant specializing in cataloging and continues to oversee the maintenance of our physical collections and technology equipment. Terrell also supports ours physical library spaces and helps patrons every day at our front desk.
