Dedication

This publication would not have been possible without the guidance of Library Director Nancy Perlow and is dedicated to her in appreciation of 40 years of service on the occasion of her retirement on May 18, 2012. In her term as director (2008-2012) Nancy has been influential in continuing to develop the Library’s permanent collection of art. She is truly a kind-hearted, compassionate and fair-minded leader who has given her entire working career to the Newton Free Library, its patrons and staff. How fortunate we have been. She will truly be missed.

Ellen Meyers,

Newton Free Library

Director of Programs and Communications

Your Self-Guided Tour of Our Art Collection

The Newton Free Library has had the good fortune to acquire a significant collection of art works through the years, whether purchased or generously donated. These pieces are on permanent display throughout the building for the enjoyment of our patrons and visitors. We welcome you to take a tour of our art collection, whether virtually via our website at www.newtonfreelibrary.net or in person with this guide.

This self-guided tour begins outside the Homer Street entrance, moves through the lobby into New Books, then through the Reference Hall to Newspapers and Magazines. It continues back to the lobby at the foot of the Grand Staircase and goes up the Grand Staircase to the second floor. On the second floor, the tour continues to the right at the Teen Area and then proceeds to the left around the Atrium and into the Administration Area. It winds up the Grand Staircase to the third floor, then back down the Grand Staircase to the first floor and into the Children’s Room, Patio and concludes in Vanessa’s Café near the parking lot entrance.
