Art museum renames library after volunteer

The Laguna Art Museum honored two volunteers at its open house Tuesday night, and renamed its library after one of them.

The facility is now called the Carole Reynolds Art Research Library, in honor of the Laguna resident who has volunteered with the museum for 27 years, museum officials announced in a news release. Reynolds has been the museum's volunteer librarian for the past 20 years.


She is active in the community as president of the Friends of the Library. She also serves on the Arts Commission and co-founded the Community Art Project, according to the release.

Lindy Narver, who helps Reynolds in the museum library, was honored Tuesday as the museum's Volunteer of the Year. Narver has helped Janet Blake, the curator of collections, in archiving and curating projects this year, the release said.

More than 200 people turned out for the annual open house event at the museum at 307 Cliff Drive.
