Martin appointed new library trustee

The Delaware County District Library will welcome a new face to the Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday. Denise M. Martin was appointed to the Library’s board in July, following the resignation of Lori Saviers earlier this summer.

A Delaware County resident since 2000, Martin holds degrees from The Ohio State University and Capital University Law School. She’s practiced law in the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, Morrow County Prosecutor’s Office, and many years in private practice. Martin has also served on the boards of Downtown Marion and Marion Technical College Foundation.

The meeting will take place at 5 p.m. in the Ostrander Branch Library, 75 N. Fourth St. Judge Everett Krueger of the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas appointed Martin in July to fill Saviers’ remaining term. The seven-year term expires December 31, 2019.
