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.
