See Local Art at the Library

Yard Dog by Sam Ezell

"At a time in which both libraries and arts organizations are often having to do more with less, it makes sense for these two parts of our culture to support each other." Library as Incubator Project

Throughout the year, we display work by local artists at the Main Library in downtown Hillsborough. We can often accommodate more than one artist or group of artists. For additional information contact Libbie Hough, communications manager.

Art at the Carrboro Branch Library

The library is honored to have the Friends of the Carrboro Branch Library support this artist-operated program in the southern part of the county. Through this vibrant partnership, we have displayed the work of over 1,650 local artists over the past 17 years.
