Award for Excellence in Librarianship

Cynthia S. Hagelberger, Reference Librarian – Cynthia “Cindy” Hagelberger came to Genesee as a part-time librarian in 1996 and received full-time appointment in 2012. She immediately made significant contributions to the services provided by the College Library as a part-time employee and she has increased her level of commitment in her full-time role. Cindy co-ordinates, schedules and manages Information Desk staff, and her organization and attention to detail greatly contribute to the library’s efforts to maintain a high level of student satisfaction. Creativity plays a big part in her approach, as she creates displays, programs, graphic materials and even approaches instruction with the eye toward making learning appealing and interesting. Cindy has written successful grants for library initiatives, and coordinates the Library’s Student Poetry Contest each year as well as a project to celebrate GCC faculty and staff authors by producing local versions of the popular American Library Association READ posters seen in libraries across the country. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Arts/Literature from Grove City College (Pa.) and a Master’s degree in Library Services from the University at Buffalo. Cindy resides in Darien Center.
