Art @ your library

Are you a fan of art, but don't want to drive all the way downtown? Come on into the library. Upcoming exhibits are always on the horizon. The library has two display areas featuring local Northwest Art League members. Next spring, we look forward to hosting an exhibit of ceramics from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston that is sure to spark conversation and creativity! Can't wait until then...
