Wells Branch Community Library Volunteer coordinates monthly exhibits!
Last December, we posted an ad on VolunteerMatch.org 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!
