The following Onondaga County Public Libraries will host art exhibits during the month of April. All exhibits are free and open to the public.

"Final products of digital pictorials and digital expressions begin with photographic images as I continually exercise and refine my personal art of seeing." The artist is continually on the look out for a world of color, line and form found in barns, fields, farmlands, lakeside skies and other objects. Dieso pays close attention to the interplay of light, shape, appearance, patterns and textures. Call 435-1900 for more information.
Mundy Branch Library, located at 1204 South Geddes Street, welcomes spring with an array of floral photographs.
