Exhibits

The Georgetown Public Library hosts monthly art exhibits that are accessible all the hours that the library is open. Each year from 2014-2017 the library has received the Silver award for “Best Place to View Art” in the Best of Georgetown Awards.

Exhibits feature work by local individual artists and by local arts groups. The library welcomes proposals for future exhibits during each year’s open call; details are below.

The library also displays works of art that have been purchased by the City of Georgetown, and is a City Sculpture Tour location.

Live Music at the Library

Every month, there is a free concert in the library! The Georgetown Public Library hosts “Live Music at the Library” at 2 pm the third Sunday of each month. Check the Library Events Calendar or the listings below for specific dates.
Concerts are usually held in the library’s first floor lobby area, and are free and open to the public. No tickets or reservations are required; just come have a seat and enjoy the music, or come and go as you like.

The Live Music in the Library series is a gift of the Friends of the Georgetown Public Library.
