Medina County District Library features four premium art galleries able to display the work of talented artists.
Medina Library Gallery, known as the B. Smith Gallery, is located on the third floor of the library. The gallery hosts monthly shows in a beautiful space filled with abundant natural light. The gallery hosts national shows, the Medina County Art League's annual Aquarius show in February, and exhibits from local artist and groups.
Thanks to the Medina County Arts Council, the B. Smith Gallery now houses an art display case that allows three-dimensional art to be safely shown.
Highland Library Gallery features exhibits in partnership with the Cliffside Artist Collaborative and other local artists.
Lodi Library and Brunswick Library Galleries are located in the libraries' Community Rooms.
