Art @ Your Library: Lizzie Ochoa

This past spring, our library was fortunate to receive Lizzie Ochoa as an intern through the GOAL (Grow Your Own Librarians) program. She has been a major help during our busiest times and when we are short-staffed. We didn't realize that we would also get a very talented professional artist and teacher. Lizzie has recently taught youth art programs at our library, and now we are very excited to be exhibiting her artwork and Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead Collection in our lobby.

Here's a pic of Lizzie when she was featured in the newspaper last year. Read the full article here.
Stop in during our hours of operation throughout October to view her artwork and personal collection. You'll get to read her complete bio, as well as the inspiration behind each art piece.

Here's a peek at what you'll find:
Lizzie's Day of the Dead/Dia de los Muertos collection.
