Summer 2017 Exhibit at Ashby Library

The talented artists from Ashby Elementary School, grades K-4, are showing samples of their art in the Gallery at the Library this summer. Come in and see the creativity of our young, local artists! Summer hours apply.

Request for Photographs of Ashby for the Library's 2017 Fall Exhibit

The Gallery Coordinator is asking Ashbyites to submit copies of their favorite photos of Ashby for an exhibition that will be up from the beginning of September until late Fall. The photos will be grouped by location so that we can see all the different ways we see the same thing. Please put your name, contact info, whether you want your photo copy  back, and where the photo was taken (and when, if you know). Photo copies at least 5x7 are appreciated so that they are more easily viewed but smaller ones will be accepted. These copies can be dropped off any time during normal summer hours. This is one of the Library's contributions to Ashby250. Please forward this to your picture-taking friends.


The Library has it own web site at
