We’re excited to announce our first online art auction! The collection contains over 80 pieces of art by local Hudson Valley artists! The art auction is designed not only to help raise funds for the library but also to help local artists generate some much-needed income. Proceeds from the sales will be split between the artist and the library (45% to the artist, 55% to the library).
