The Art & Text Show has concluded…

…but there’s still time to enjoy the amazing artwork before it’s all gone! Each day, between now and mid-December, the Library’s art galleries will be emptying to prepare for the 2020 shows–so don’t delay, come in today. A sincere thank you to all the artists who participated in our show. Your amazing artwork beautified the Library!
