The Mahlon & Roberta Arnett Art Book Collection
Hutto residents, Mahlon and Roberta Arnett, donated a portion of their special art book collection to the Hutto Public Library on November 10, 2015. The collection stemmed from beloved family member Martha R. Arnett who traveled the world.  Due to the large sizes, rarity, and delicate condition of some of the books, they are part of a special "Artist Showcase Collection." The collection may only be used in the Library for reference. To find a book in the collection visit the Hutto Public Library's Online Catalog and search for the keyword "Mahlon and Roberta Arnett." The bookcase that the materials are being display on are a donation from a local Hutto resident.
