1. North Gloucester Library - Reminder July 9, 2019
The Library is planning repainting of the walls, therefore on Tuesday, July 9, 2019, please retrieve the works that are currently hanging. We will not be able to accept new artwork as the painting will be done on Friday mornings and Sundays while the library is closed to the public, so it could take most of the summer to complete. They expect the work to be complete in September.
We will keep you informed about the progress and the date when we can display our art again.
Have a great summer.
