Reed Gallery Exhibitions

Opened in March 2006, the Reed Gallery is located on the third floor of the City Library and fulfills A. H. Reed’s dream of a readily available space for patrons to view heritage materials.

Exhibitions change approximately every four months and highlight central themes in the Library’s collections.

Many of the books and ephemera displayed are precious or rare and the changing selection of materials allows visitors to experience the rich holdings of the Heritage Collections.

Since November 2010, the exhibitions have also been presented in an online version. These can be viewed at
