We asked Gloria Lacina a few questions for this “Volunteer Spotlight:”
How long have you been volunteering for the Iowa City Public Library?
Over 15 years.
What do you do at the Library?
Why did you decide to volunteer at the Library?
I wanted to do a service for the community. I’ve been coming to the Library since I was a little girl. I remember going to the old, old Library. I’ve been through a lot of transitions.
What is your favorite part of the collection?
I read an awful lot of fiction, but I also like biographies and history. I also like classic movies and British period TV series.
What else do you like to do?
I’m a big reader. I also knit, crotchet and bake. I try and walk three miles a day when weather permits.
Thank you, Gloria, for all of your time and hard work!
