As we update sections and buy books for assignments sometimes we get a few books on a topic all at once. We recently weeded our art collection and decided to add a few books from the Amazon list of Best Art Books of 2017. Check out these books and let us know if there are any artists or mediums or schools that you’d like to see us add.

These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.
