Lunch with the League
Zoom, Friday, 9/10/2021
Debra Futa, Executive Director of St. Joseph County Public Library, will talk about the Main Library project. Although the finished spaces will be truly beautiful, the library has much more to offer than the building itself. Deb will share her ideas about where SJCPL would like to take their services in the next few years.
Ms. Futa just finished her 42nd year at the library. She started as a Children’s Librarian at the River Park Branch and has worked in a number of positions over the years. For 20 years she served as the Assistant Director under Don Napoli, and then stepped into the Executive Director role when he retired in June of 2015. She helped steer building projects in every one of SJCPL’s ten locations over the past couple of decades. This is a really exciting time for our community and she is thrilled to be a part of it. Deb graduated from Manchester College with a BA and completed a Master’s Degree in Library Science at IU.
