Volunteer Spotlight: Debbie Varga

Posted on October 13, 2021

Debbie Varga has been a volunteer with the Library for the last three years. As a retired Family and Consumer Science teacher, she helps people learn to sew by teaching or assisting with sewing classes. 


Why did Debbie decide to become a library volunteer? She says, “I have always appreciated what a great library this city has, and this was a way to get involved at another level. I have enjoyed working with people that want to learn a new skill, especially the teenagers.”


Her commitment and love for the library and lifelong learning are clear. Recently she brought some retired teacher friends to tour the Exchange makerspace for the first time. They were visibly impressed with the variety of sewing machines as well as all of the other tools available for the community to use for learning new skills and creating. 


Debbie is excited to teach her first sewing class at the Exchange in December of 2021. Watch our calendar of events for upcoming Make It! classes to sign up. 

Do you have a special skill, hobby, or other passion? We are always looking for volunteers interested in teaching community members. Check out our Volunteer web page to learn more.
