Artists & Displays

Monthly Artists & Displays

Stop by the libraries every month to see changing displays featuring beautiful works of art and interesting collections, artifacts, or memorabilia--all contributed by the creative, talented people that live right alongside you in your community.


March 2015:

Do you have an interesting collection to share?

We're always looking for community members who wish to share their talents at the library each month. 

Displays provide exposure to the work of artisans and artists, or provide information on subjects of general interest to the public. The display cases are secured. For more information call your local branch or contact us.

The 2015 Love Your Library Evening is hosted by the Citrus County Special Library District Advisory Board. All of the proceeds from this special after hours fundraising event benefit the Citrus County Library System and all of the community-enriching services it provides, including quality educational classes, cultural programming, access to technology and resources, as well as new books and materials.

Andrew Carnegie once noted “A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert.” On this remarkable evening you can support the library system and display your fervent belief in access to quality education for all, which strengthens our community. So, show your support for your local neighborhoods, the library branches within them, and join us for the 5th Annual Love Your Library Evening!
