The Brooks Memorial Library houses an extensive permanent art collection, including works by Daniel Chester French, Larkin Mead, and William Morris Hunt, among others. There are also artifacts from history and pre-history: come see the mammoth tusk! Visitors are invited to take the self-guided fine arts walking tour. Tour pamphlets are available on both floors.
The Library also offers changing exhibits throughout the year, featuring work by local artists on the main floor and work by children's illustrators in the exhibit cases outside the Children's Room. For more information about exhibiting work, please contact Christine deVallet, the Library's public art coordinator. Exhibitors are required to complete a Public Exhibit Application.
