  • Instructions on book care
  • A history of books

Because of our popular story time programs, no tours are available before noon Tuesdays - Fridays.

The Attic at Academy Square

The Attic at Academy Square brings in a variety of art, science, and history traveling exhibits. Housed on the 4th floor of the historic Academy Building, we rotate exhibits every 6-10 weeks, so there is always something new to see.

Current Exhibit and Operating Hours

Hours in the The Attic are limited but we are happy to schedule a private tour for groups interested.
