Linda Dunn is an alumna of Edgecliff College/Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio; of Florida State University in Gainesville, Florida; and of Hodges University in Fort Myers, Florida.  She holds a Master’s Degree of Science in Library and Information Studies, with undergraduate work in Interdisciplinary Studies. She also earned an Association Montessori Internationale Diploma from the Southern Montessori Institute in Miami, Florida.

Linda worked as a teacher, with a particular focus on children with disabilities. Her experience with designing educational displays in the public school system brought her into contact with the field of Library Science, in which she has now worked for nearly two decades. She has been with the Lee County Library System for half of that time. Linda took a special interest in book mending, in which she continues to pursue advanced studies. As a result, she has been of great assistance to the Archimandrite John Memorial Library in restoration and preservation of many of its older texts and materials.

Linda is a member of the Lee County and Ohio Genealogical Societies, and of the Southwest Florida Library Network (SWFLN).
