Little Free Libraries

Made possible by a grant from NeighborWorks Great Falls, funding from Friends of the Great Falls Public Library, hours of building and painting by numerous volunteers, and book donations from our community



 The Great Falls Public Library is hosting an art exhibit by eclectic artist Alma Winberry during the months of June and July.  Alma repurposes materials to create an eclectic blend of paintings, sculptures, fabric art, and unique one-of-a-kind pieces.  No medium is taboo to Alma. A reception, which will be free and open to the public, will be held for Alma on Thursday, June 9, from 5 – 7 pm. 


In August and September the library is hosting Freedom Isn’t Free, an art exhibit by painter Gloria Luna. The paintings included in this inspirational exhibit will be accompanied by stories of survivors of war, those who grieve for lost lives, those suffering from PTSD, and of those who still fight.

 A “meet-and-greet” reception for Luna will be held for Luna on Saturday, August 20 from 1 – 3 pm.  The public is invited to this free event and encouraged to stop in to enjoy the diverse exhibit.

 In August and September the library will also be hosting an exhibit of cross-stitch and similar handwork created by Marlou McCann and Lyla Boschee.
