“Lost & Found” – Including Scholar’s Desk & Volumes from a Black Library at the Ossining Public Library

Artist, Shiela Hale of Katonah, is displaying her beautiful creation of book art at the Ossining Public Library until the end of April on the 2nd floor.  The exhibit is titled, “Lost & Found” – Including Scholar’s Desk & Volumes from a Black Library.

“I am a lover of books, Shiela says.  I read them, I make them, I alter them, and I build with them and for them.  I was an early reader and I began reading to my children in their infancy.  Books are my constant companions.  I am comforted by their presence.  I like to see them lined up on shelves and stacked in towers.  I always have one in my handbag and one in my car.”
