The Library recognizes that the arts are a distinguishing characteristic of our community’s identity. To support our community’s creative talents, we offer spaces that showcase local artists in a setting that invites connection and reflection.
Our Art Gallery is a canvas for established and emerging artists who work in an exciting range of styles and media. Come experience this month’s exhibit and discover a new artist, perspective, and source of pleasure. Works are on display both on the Main Floor and Lower Level.
In addition to our monthly exhibitions, over the years the Library has acquired a collection of fine art. Selected pieces are on display in the Library.
