The library hosts art exhibits by local artists of all ages. Exhibits are usually up between four and six weeks and may include artist receptions, music, and art demonstrations. We have four primary gallery spaces in the library: The Community Art Gallery is located on the east wall of the Atrium and also includes the entrance ramp and stairwell. The Solo Gallery takes up the north end of the Atrium. The Lower Level Gallery incorporates the entry space into the Youth Department and meeting rooms. The Local History and Culture Gallery includes featured display cases on our Upper Level.
