Many have lost friends, family and even colleagues to COVID-19, and the Norman Public Library is no exception.
Cylinda Richardson-Martin worked as a Customer Experience Manager at the Norman Public Library for over 15 years. She helped customers outside of just finding a book, and colleagues say not a day went by that she didn’t leave a positive impact on them and the community.
Employees felt the best way to honor her was through an art piece of over 2,000 origami cranes donated by her family members and employees from all libraries in the area.
“Her husband said it’s great, if you just try a little bit you can make a big difference in the world,” said Aaron Prince, colleague and friend of Richardson-Martin.
Colleagues say Richardson-Martin was a jack of all trades, helping anyway and anyone she could.
