Do NOT miss the Paper Guild's pieces in the lower level!
In 1992, the Paper Guild was founded  to share a love for and knowledge of this historic craft and versatile, evolving art form.  The mission of this not-for-profit organization is to support the education and development of members who work with paper in many forms to create original works of art.

 

Some of the  materials used for this display: stained tissue paper, wasp made paper, handmade paper and canson paper. There are many more pieces in the library's lower level.
It's worth a look!
