Most people remember John Briant as the author of the popular Adirondack Detective Series. Many may not know he also enjoyed painting which he took up along with writing after his retirement as a New York State Trooper. He served a distinguished 29-year career with Troops D and B as a State Trooper and a BCI Investigator starting in 1953.
John was an avid Old Forge Library supporter up until his death in 2013. His family continues his legacy by sharing his paintings with the library. They are available for sale and currently on display in the Gallery/Quilt room of the OFL until Dec. 31. A portion of each sale will be donated to the Library.
