Display Cases & Wall Space at the Library!

Do you have something you'd love to showcase?

The Piscataway Library encourages artistic and cultural interests of the community by providing a showcase for art by community and local artists. Kennedy Library reserves wallspace for this purpose and we allow artists to display their artwork for one month, unless no one else is waiting for the space. (Please ask to see our Art Display Policy.)

Kennedy and Westergard Libraries both have glass display cases for collections or art work that you would be proud to display. Kennedy Library's entranceway is home to two tall cases (with shelves) and a flat glass case, and Westergard Library has a display case as well. All cases are kept secure and locked at all times.

So, if you want to show off your collection of artwork, trolls, figurines, handicrafts -- anything interesting that you believe will catch people's eye and that you are proud to share, email Mary Piekarski at mpiekars@piscatawaylibrary.org. Describe what you would like to exhibit and when and we will follow up with availability and approval. Like the wallspace, displays are scheduled on a monthly basis, and we reserve the right to decide what is appropriate for display.
