Sustainer Chair

Catherine Dodwell joined the Junior League of Bergen County as a Provisional in the 1983-84 League year.  Currently serving as the Sustainer Chair, she has participated in a variety of community placements and served on the JLBC Board six times as the Chair of Training/Development (twice), Strategic Planning, Nominating, Project/Fundraiser Review & Appraisal; and Recording Secretary.  She views volunteering as a personally rewarding commitment and has recently become involved with serving as the Recording Secretary on the Board of the Glen Rock Public Library and the Vice President of the Ramsey Senior Citizens Board.  Her 40+ year professional career was devoted to public and academic libraries, mostly as a reference librarian and three times as a Library Director.  When her two daughters moved out of the house to begin their own lives and careers, unconditional love was provided by two yellow labs, Olivia and Lucy who served as Therapy Dogs in library PAWS programs for many years.
