Art Exhibits for May: Our May exhibit “Bird Habitats of the River Valley” features ink and acrylic bird drawings of local artist Kim Russell.
The Glass Case Gallery highlights definitions and examples of area habitats, accompanied by reproductions of Russell's stylized birds. In the Community Room Gallery, Russell's large art work is on display—accompanied by descriptive statements about the birds' relationships to their environs.
Both parts of the exhibit are available for viewing during regular library hours. The Community Room Gallery is available whenever the room is not in use. Please ask for the key at the circulation desk.
