Alice C. Sabatini Gallery


The Sabatini Gallery is your connection to the Arts: inspiring curiosity, developing visual literacy, and building our community. We are located a short distance from the library entrance, just to the right of the rotunda.

  • Exhibits, programs, and events are free, casual, and open to the public.
  • Hours are the same as the Library except when closed for change of exhibition in the Main Gallery (traveling and gallery-curated exhibits, competitions).
  • Our Front Gallery (permanent collection exhibits) remains open.
  • Reach us at the Gallery Desk (785-580-4515) or at any of our individual numbers and/or emails below.
