Margaret Dugan has been a regular volunteer at the Janaf Branch Library since March of 2009.My upbringing was on this delightful island situated in the South of England, about 60 miles from London. As my goal was to be a school teacher, my education took me to London where I was to meet my future husband.
Being a Navy wife her travels took her to North Africa where she was employed by the Department of Defense as a school teacher. During her summer months she worked in the library on the naval base. That is where Margaret learned the Dewey Decimal System, “my how things have changed,” she states. On her return to the United States she continued her teaching career. Being a little disillusioned with this profession she took courses to become a tour planner. Many years later after successfully conquering the world of travel she now enjoys being a tour director and step-on guide work for the City of Norfolk. Margaret’s thoughts once more turned to her love of reading and the library. Those thoughts sent her to the Janaf Branch library, where the staff have always greeted me with a smile and accepted me as a volunteer. Margaret hopes to one day become a staff member with the Norfolk Public Library.
The staff of Janaf Branch Library and the Norfolk Public Library appreciates Margaret’s dedication to the library volunteer program.
She will also be featured on the NPL Volunteer website and in the NPL Newsletter.
