Paso Robles City Library cards now have a new 'whimsical' look.

The cards feature work by local photographer and digital artist Bruce Cook.

City officials say he layers photos or parts of photos and "creates scenes and landscapes that seem photographically realistic and compelling but, in fact, exist only in his mind."

The image on the new "whimsical" cards is a blended photo of Cook's niece's daughter with a zebra from his archives.

Cook says the scene recalls his own joy of being absorbed by books and the imagery they inspire and he wants to know what others see in the image.

The Paso Robles City Library is located at 1000 Spring Street.

Hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
