Trustee Sherri Dahl has been a Placentia resident for 20 years. She earned a B.A. in Social Ecology, Psychology and Social Behavior, from the University of California, Irvine and an M.B.A. from The University of Phoenix. Her work background encompassed experience in multiple social services programs, where she enjoyed making a positive difference in the lives of her clients. Trustee Dahl medically retired from work relatively early in her career due to severe spinal injuries and chronic pain. With a life-long history of being a volunteer, she looked for ways to give to her community working around her needs. She joined the Placentia Round Table Women’s Club in and the Placentia Library Friends Foundation in 1997, and became a Placentia Library Friends Foundation Board Member in 2016. She served as Board President of PLFF until December 2020, when she transitioned to the Library Board of Trustees. Trustee Dahl has a fondness for libraries going back to childhood. Her insatiable passion for reading is fed by books, the internet, cereal boxes, and even product ingredient lists on packaging, if desperate.
