Library Loop: Art and more at the library

Those of you that have been reading our Library Loop articles over the past few months are beginning to realize that libraries offer much more than books. Of course, we all love books and libraries will continue to have books and audio/visual materials, but there is so much more to libraries than just books. For instance, are you aware that most of our libraries have gallery spaces that feature local artist’s artwork? When you stop by the library for any one of our programs, or to grab a good book, be sure to stop for a moment to enjoy the art created by our talented local artists. Kings Beach is hosting watercolors by Jenny Antonucci. Tahoe City is currently hosting acrylic mandalas by Nicole Stirling and wood art by Logan Greenwood. Incline Village is hosting artwork by Incline High School AP Art students, and North Lake High School is featuring art in their library from Mrs. Battaglia’s art classes. If you’re a local artist and would like to show your work in our gallery spaces, please contact one of the libraries for more details. See you at the library!
