Library hosting art

auction fundraiser

Dallas Public Library is conducting a silent auction for artwork now through May 30.

The Friends of the Library have original artwork by local artist William Eldon Hahn on display to bid on.

Hahn lived in Dallas for more than 32 years and retired to the Southwest for the winters and learned to paint. His paintings help bring the warm colors of the Southwest back to Oregon with the attention an outdoorsman pays to his art.

You can view this art show during regular library hours: Monday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The library is located at 950 Main St.

All money raised by the silent auction will benefit the Friends of the Dallas Public Library.
