October Art Exhibit - Nancy Whiteside

Nancy Whiteside’s art captures the beauty and enchantment of the natural world through highly realistic acrylic paintings. This exhibit of bird portraits is called Covid Corvids. The deeply saturated colours evoke the richness and emotional impact of a continually surprising environment.

Blind or partially sighted visitors can access a visual description of the exhibit or check it out beforehand on the art at the library website.

Holidays and Service Updates

The library will be closed on Sunday October 10 and Monday October 11 for Thanksgiving.

Did you know we're open until 8 p.m. three nights a week? Check out the new schedule here.

We continue to adapt to new public health orders. Currently masks are required in all indoor public areas, so that means the library too. Check out our COVID page for all updated info, or follow us on social media @NWPLibrary.
