AUGUST ART DISPLAY FEATURES TALENTED TEEN LIBRARIAN
Marla Thornington Martin is the Teen Librarian at the Woodbury Public Library. In her free time she likes to create collages from recycled materials. While clearing out old supplies at the library, the idea for “Literary Cards”, a collection of literature inspired art on outdated due-date cards, was born. She hopes to see the cards take a library tour across the country someday. She also loves to mosaic, read, kayak early mornings, and spend time with her family.

This recognition was earned due to her tremendous accomplishments in programming, acquisition, and design for the small teen space at Woodbury Public Library.
Marla’s art cards will be on display for the entire month of August. Please call and check the library hours before coming to view this art exhibit. A reception for those wishing to chat with Marla about her beautiful and unique artwork will be held in the library’s gallery on Thursday, August 16th from 7 – 8:30 p.m.
Please call 203-263-3502 for more information.
