Take the opportunity to view some of the library's Audubon prints in person: the Milwaukee Art Museum is hosting an exhibit entitled “Catesby, Audubon, and the Discovery of a New World: Prints of the Flora and Fauna of America”. Seven of the sixty prints of the beautiful plants, birds, mammals, and reptiles are owned by Milwaukee Public Library.

The prints were loaned from one of the Milwaukee Public Library’s prized collections , the John James Audubon “Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America” dated from 1842 to 1854.

The exhibit will be on display through March 22, 2009.
