Wells Branch Community Library Volunteer coordinates monthly exhibits!

Genia Cowart joined the Wells Branch Community Library's team of volunteers in January of 2010. Her skills and interests include architecture and exhibits.

Last December, we posted an ad on looking for a qualified volunteer to coordinate our monthly, rotating Picturing America exhibit. Genia responded with enthusiasm!  Last month, she created an exhibit based on a Martin Luther King, Jr. theme.  This month, the theme was American presidents.

Come to the library to see her excellent work!  Each months she frames high-quality reprints of American art, creates coordinating bookmarks, pulls related library materials that patrons can check out, prints and displays informative text, and prepares audio tours.

When I asked Genia what she likes best about volunteering at the library, she says, "I come to the library every month and set up a new exhibit. It's fun to volunteer by doing something creative."  

Thank you for your excellent service to our library and community, Genia!
