Volunteer Spotlight January 2024

Every month, the Citrus County Library System features a volunteer in their “Outside the Stacks” blog on their website. This month, the Lakes Region Library would like to shine the spotlight on Linda. We asked Linda several questions and we wanted to share her responses!

Volunteer Spotlight
Lakes Region Library Volunteer Linda


Q: What has been one of your favorite volunteer moments?

A: One of my favorite moments was when I was in the stacks and a patron asked for a suggestion for a new author. I was able to help her find a book based on her past reading choices.


Q: What inspired you to volunteer with the library?

A: I was inspired to volunteer with the library as I was impressed by all the services offered to the county residents by our library system. I knew this was a group I wanted to become more involved in. Our libraries never disappoint and continue to offer more and varied services to the community.


Q: Why is it important to you to volunteer at the library?

A: It’s important to me to volunteer at the library as I want to continue to be a part of a valuable resource to our community. The more I learn, the more I can tell others about the great things that are being offered at our libraries.


Q: Who is your favorite author?

A: I do not have a favorite author, but I do love a good murder mystery. If the story is set in England, even better!


Q: Other than volunteering, what do you like to do with your free time?

A: When I am not volunteering at the library, I like to travel and explore new cities – Barcelona, London, Edinburgh and Lisbon to name a few favorites.


Q: What is your favorite food?

A: My favorite food is fish tacos. They are different everywhere you go and most are delicious.
