Art in the Library


Art in the Library is a program sponsored by the North Olympic Library System, which provides display space for works created by Clallam County artists. Art in the Library exhibits rotate on a regular two or three month schedule. Currently Art in the Library exhibit space is available in the Port Angeles Main Library and the Sequim Branch Library.

The Art in the Library program would not be possible without financial support from the Port Angeles Friends of the Library and the Friends of Sequim Library; the commitment and generous donation of time by volunteer Art in the Library Exhibit Coordinators; and the creativity and community involvement of local artists.

The exhibit will be on display at the library from April 15 until July 12.

This program has been made possible by generous contributions from the Port Angeles Friends of the Library, and by the efforts of volunteer art coordinator Diane Williams, who schedules the artists and curates each show.
