Gloria Cachion Art Gallery and Ludorf Collection

The Gloria Cachion Art Gallery, adjacent to the lobby, is an open two-story area along with the Brown Conference Room that showcases in-house and online exhibitions. It is available principally for local artists on a monthly rotation to present their work.

The Gallery was dedicated in May 2011 featuring the "Uncle John" Ludorf Collection photographed by Georgia Sheron.  This collection donated by Connie and Jack Hume is on display throughout the library as part of its permanent collection.
