Art Gallery

The Library’s art collection, permanent and rotating, has become a popular feature and sets the Cherry Hill Public Library apart from other public buildings. The CHPL Art Gallery (located on the lower level) showcases artists from the amateur to those whose work is known worldwide. The gallery exhibit rotates monthly. In addition to the gallery, other art is displayed throughout the building, many pieces on long-term or permanent loan. If you are interested in featuring your art in the Library, please contact Suzanne Fox at 856-903-1207 or
