“Quilts: Shared Stories and Expressions of Love” is the art installation now on display at the Los Alamos Library, said a spokeswoman for the Friends of the Los Alamos Library.
Each of the 10 displayed quilts from local residents has a unique story shared through interviews by each quilt owner.
“These quilts are labors of love, imbued with love, given to others as an act of love, and speak of love to all who listen,” said Cynthia Carbone Ward, a contributor to the show.
In addition to the quilts and stories, a corresponding display features quilting books.
The show opened Wednesday evening with a free reception and will continue through April.
Hours at the Los Alamos Library, located at 405 Helena St., are 2 to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 2 to 6 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The library is closed Sunday and Monday.
