In honor of the Clark Library’s reopening, an exhibit of artists’ books is on display in the lobby through mid-October.

See books taken to another level! Created by regional artists, these handmade books are on loan from the University of Puget Sound and Pacific University.

The selections from the University of Puget Sound reflect social justice, history, and appreciation of the natural environment. They also showcase a variety of design techniques from pop-up to accordion binding.
