Community Art & Exhibits

As part of our commitment to our mission, the Walter E. Olson Memorial Library
offers two exhibit spaces that are available for community use:  our Community Room Gallery, and large display case.

These spaces are intended to highlight the diverse talents and interests represented in our community. Exhibits may include creative works, historical artifacts, and other items that appeal to a range of ages, interests, and information needs.
