Library discards as art

Those of you that know our newest Children's Librarian, Julia Weist, also know that she's an amazing artist (her impressive resume includes an art degree from Cooper Union).

My sincerest apologies for the late notice, but you've got 2 days to get to the Gasser/Grunert gallery to see the current exhibition Against the Way Things Go , which features Julia's latest mixed media installation. It's a fascinating study of library books as cultural objects. As librarians, we love books. Some, like Julia, also write books. And many of us, end up {almost always reluctantly} weeding and discarding them as well. Check out the exhibit before it's gone. And yes, some of those discards did come from NYSL.
