Diverse wildlife artwork is focus of new Library exhibit

Who: Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County

What: Animals Illustrated exhibit

Where: Joseph S. Stern, Jr. Cincinnati Room at the Main Library

When: Now through April 24

Why: For many of us our first exposure to various animals came from children’s books. Childhood memories of trips to the zoo, a farm, or the circus also introduced us to domestic animals and exotic wildlife. Many artists and photographers have documented the diverse creatures that share our planet. In this exhibit, there is a wide range of historic books with illustrations of animals found around the world.

Cincinnati Room hours: 9 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9 a.m.–6 p.m. Saturday; and 1 p.m.–5 p.m. Sunday.
