Los Alamos County Library presents “The Disappearing Art Show,” featuring more than 175 framed prints, paintings and photographs, all free to borrow from your library. The show will be on display Aug. 30 to Sept. 25, or until there is no art left. Visit the Mesa Public Library Art Gallery on the second floor to see the show.

Los Alamos County Library System has collections in many different formats: magazines, large print books, foreign language books and newspapers, DVDs, CDs, downloadable e books and audio books, all free for patrons to borrow or enjoy in the libraries.
But art? Yes! The library has close to 200 framed prints, paintings, and photographs ready for hanging in a broad range of styles to freshen up your home or office environments. Feel like a change of scenery?
Not only does the Library have prints by the old masters, but many works by local artists, too. Try a Van Gogh, Peter Hurd, Karol Mack, or Fran Stoval, Doug Coombs or a Santa Fe Opera poster.
The library staff is challenging the community to come by to help empty the gallery by the end of the show, so come early in the month to choose two of your favorites to check out for four weeks before they all disappear!
