Janis Joplin, Library Volunteer #KeeperoftheDay

KOTD-Janis-Joplin-Card

#KeeperoftheDay – Janis Joplin, who worked at her local library when she was a teen.

In this clipping from the Port Arthur News, she stands in front of a poster on display at the Gates Memorial Library, one of several she designed for the library. (As the paper notes, she was “named one of the top artists in the ninth grade.”)

On working in the library she says, “It gives me a chance to practice art and at the same time to do something worthwhile for the community.”
