Gallery in the Loft
The Wagnalls-Jones family appreciated visual arts and included in the Wagnalls Memorial a room in the Tower  dedicated to the art of artist, John Ward Dunsmore. In keeping with that appreciation and the desire for the    people of Lithopolis and Bloom Township to have opportunities to experience art, the Wagnalls Memorial Foundation has designed a gallery on the second floor above the library, fondly known as the Loft. 

The Wagnalls Memorial Foundation opens our gallery to local artists who wish to exhibit their work. Art shows and exhibits will change every six to eight weeks typically. Shows and exhibits can be enjoyed during normal library hours. The gallery also doubles as an event space, so please consider calling ahead to be sure you will be able to visit the gallery when you visit Wagnalls. 

Artists who sell their works graciously offer commissions to the Wagnalls Memorial supporting our mission.
                                                                     Artists interested in exhibiting in our gallery, please email .
