Student Art Show

      During the month of May the Friends of the Amherst Town Library are pleased to be showcasing selected artwork by students from Clark and Wilkins Elementary Schools, Mont Vernon Village School and Amherst Middle School. To celebrate these young artists, a reception with refreshments is planned for Saturday May 7 from 12-2 PM at the library. 

      With incredible support from SAU39’s art teachers, the Friends of the Amherst Town Library, a volunteer organization supporting our library’s programs, has hosted this crowd pleaser for many years. 

      Student artwork will be on display through May 26. Come and see the masterpieces these students have accomplished throughout the school year.
