Walking Books Library receives gift, welcomes community to take part

DIXFIELD — Walking Books Library has received a donation of books “from away” that all Mainers are invited to enjoy.
A.R.T. Press is donating more than 60 art books including William Wegman’s “Dogs On Rocks” photographed in Maine and featuring the now famous weimaraners striking poses on rocks around the state.

Other highlights of the donation include several collections by African American artists as well as some one-of-a-kind “artist books.” They tend to be quirky works of art all on their own. If you’ve never experienced one before, now’s the chance.
All the art books are part of the library’s “check out” program, not the free giveaways, and can be borrowed for one month at a time. No library card needed. For more information or to reserve a book, call 207-491-3672.
