Is the barcode on your library card fading? We have discovered that the barcodes printed with a thermal printer tend to fade after a while. Reciprocal borrowing libraries will not be happy if they cannot scan your barcode. If you have found this to be a problem, please return your card to the library. A new barcode printed on a laser printer will be affixed to your card. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Shadow Boxes for Amusement and Contemplation

During March & April, Maria King is exhibiting shadow boxes created with printed artworks (paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, and digitally manipulated images) as well as miscellaneous items such as lichen, moss, sea shells, stones, miniature bottles, etc.

Her interest in making shadow boxes began in May 2023 when she learned that the term “shadow box” originally referred to a box containing sailor’s mementos (his shadow) of his time on a ship. Intrigued by the custom, she decided to create boxes filled with images she cherishes, which constitute her own shadow.

With an array of boxes, Maria will rotate the display each three weeks during the exhibit. A complete catalog of boxes, with titles, images, and descriptions, will be included with the exhibit.
Maria comes from Warsaw, Poland, and she and her husband, Richard, have lived in Liberty since 2011.
