Why does art in the library matter?


“Every library, stripped to its barest mission, seeks to connect people with information. Art is information—the product of a creative process and the process itself.” 
Erinn Batykefer 

Community art plays an important role in the life of Lafayette Public Library. In collaboration with the Lafayette Cultural Arts Council, we host art exhibits featuring local artists throughout the year at our three public galleries.

In addition to our gallery shows, we proudly spotlight local art in our permanent collection. 

Interested in displaying your art at the Lafayette Library?


We invite you to answer the City of Lafayette's Call for Artists! The City of Lafayette is looking for artwork to display throughout its gallery spaces, including Lafayette Public Library.
