Children’s Author Gail Gibbons Paintings Now On Exhibit

The library wants to thank Corinth resident and children’s author Gail Gibbons, who has donated 10 pieces of her original artwork to the library.  These colorful paintings are featured in 10 of her books and were inspired or informed by residents of our local community.  All 10 of these lively paintings will be on permanent exhibit downstairs in our children’s area.

Want a challenge?  Stop by and try to match up the paintings with their books!  And be sure to check out the dedications and thank yous at the front of the books—you might recognize some of your neighbors’ names!
