Tiny Art Show!

Albany – you are amazing!

We had 233 tiny masterpieces returned to the library for our first ever Tiny Art Show! The response has truly been incredible and we barely got all your work on the bookshelf. Please come by the Main Library any time we are open this month to view the art in person and vote on your favorites.

Not able to come by in person? Take a look at the virtual exhibit!
