Ames Free Library

"Where the Community Connects"

Ames Free Library will be closed on Saturday, January 29 due to inclement weather. We will reopen on Monday, January 31, for our normal hours (10 a.m. - 8 p.m.).

Featured Artist - January

Susanne Riette-Keith, a graduate from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, is exhibiting her art at Ames Free Library.  Her work is a combination of painting and collage. It uses colorful printed patterns that may be from old wall paper, magazine ads, gift wrap, etc. to form compositions that are pleasing to the eye and have a fun sense of humor.

Susanne has worked as a designer in the toy and gift industry and as an illustrator for greeting card companies. Concentrating more on her personal art now is something she is enjoying very much. Her work has been exhibited by many galleries in the local area.

The exhibit will be on the library's first floor display wall until the end of March 2022.
