The Library is actively seeking interesting displays for our display case in the lobby. We display and promote library programs, as well as artwork from the NBCS, but now seek out additional educational, artistic and cultural materials. Perhaps personal collections or hobbies. The display would be changed monthly, and the library would ensure the safety and security of the items. If you have something of interest to display, please contact Sarah Chapman, 487-3391. Thanks!
