The Scio Public Library will showcase the original works of Salem professional artists during the month of April.
The exhibit was inspired by the book “Outcasts United: An American Town, a Refugee Team, and One Woman’s Quest to Make a Difference” by Warren St. John.
The nonfiction book tells the story of a soccer team of refugees from around the world seeking to build new lives in a small town outside Atlanta, and the town’s struggle to accommodate its new arrivals.
This traveling exhibit is part of the Salem Reads Program. Copies of the book may be checked out at the library.
From 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays April 10, 17 and 24, the library will hold open houses featuring the exhibit and book. Light refreshments and drinks will be provided.
The exhibit also will be open during regular city hours, which are Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Friday from 7:30 a.m. to noon.
Scio City Hall, which includes the library, is located at 38957 NW First Ave.
