The library exhibits unique and rare books, art and ephemera, or items that reflect current events. Items are drawn from the collections of patrons and area organizations and are on monthlong display in the Rotunda during regular library hours.
Showcased in a three-tiered, custom display case built by the late Paul Flanzala, the exhibits share a central theme: objects of interest that reflect time and community.
The first curator was Berna Kaiserian who oversaw countless exhibits. Friends board member Robin Mass has served as curator since July 2019.
The library features artwork shared from local collections, such as the photographs of A.J. Folsom, Maine State Library cultural displays, and handmade textiles and crafts.
