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.


April 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.

Central Ridge Branch

 Pianos

Display: Miniature Pianos

Ellen Wesley

 Are you a fan of piano music? Ellen Wesley is! She accumulated these miniature pianos in a variety of ways, though most are gifts from former students who she taught to play the piano. Music is a big part of our culture, and whether you make music yourself or merely enjoy listening to it, it takes a lot of effort to make music! Stop by and take a look at these pieces of art!

Display: Lighthouse Collection

Cheryl Green

  In 1789 the U.S. government took over the care of lighthouses from their former private owners. In 1852, the government set up the Lighthouse Board, which was eventually superseded by the Lighthouse Service, established in 1910 to supervise lighthouses and lightships. In 1939, this service was transferred from the Department of Commerce to the U.S. Coast Guard.
