This years’ event will be an event you won’t want to miss. The dates for viewing artwork at the library will be May 9th – 14th. This year the Friends of the Library have themed the event “Water.”

The Friends of the Library are asking for local artists to participate by bringing in their work to display and/or donate an item for silent auction. The silent auction will be available for bidding during normal business hours, please obtain a bidders number from the circulation desk. Local schools will have group art projects on display for competition.

Library patrons can stop in and vote for their favorite class art project and the class with the most votes will win a basket of art supplies valued at $100.

Participants may check their items in on Saturday, May 7 from noon until 4 p.m. Registration forms are available at the circulation desk.

A special reception will be held on Saturday, May 14 from 1 to 3 p.m. in celebration of the art on display. Patrons will be able to enjoy the musical talent of Gail Schwandt as she plays the dulcimer. Punch and cookies will also be available. The silent auction will conclude at 3:30 p.m. and winners will be announced.

The Friends of the Library welcomes anyone who would like to become a friend or just help out with an event. Anyone who would like volunteer to help should contact Friends chairman Michelle Kettler at (989) 661-7863. If you have questions about the art fair, please contact Erin Schmandt, library director at (989) 845-3211.
