Linda Dutton Seaward
 Custodian, Substitute Library
lseaward@goodwinlibrary.org
Linda’s many years’ experience in family-owned inns, motels, and cottages prepared her for filling Goodwin Library’s Custodian position in July 2016. She takes pride in keeping our library house clean and bright. Don’t be surprised, though, if you see her behind the desk. A Librarian since 1998, she has worked in Circulation, Inter-library Loan, and Children’s Services at other area libraries, so she is well qualified to step in as a Substitute Librarian when needed. Ballet, swimming, gardening, and grand-parenting keep her busy, as well!

The Goodwin Library is also fortunate to have many dedicated volunteers from our town that contribute countless hours to efforts at the library. Our library would not be what it is without them. Though they may not be employees of the Goodwin Library, their enthusiasm and tireless acts of collaboration and devoted community building, should not go unnoticed.
