Discover Local Artists

Call to Artist Douglas County Libraries supports local art and artists by donating display space to a different artist each month.

Artists wishing to show their work at Douglas County Libraries may submit requests to the staff members listed below. Artists must be 18 years of age or older; artists under the age of 18 may submit their works through their school’s art program.

Artists must submit 5-10 images of their works in one of the following ways: digital photos or a link to an artist’s website via email, or prints or a CD mailed to the desired library location. Art guilds and societies may submit a single group application.

I Feel A Change Comin' On

E-books put pressure between libraries and publishers

E-books have changed the world of publishing in fundamental ways. The business model that encouraged publishers to support the work of public libraries has changed to such an extent that this relationship has been stressed to the point of non cooperation. Listen to Douglas County Libraries' former Director Jamie LaRue and Kansas State Librarian Jo Budler discuss these issues with host Lynn Neary on NPR’s Morning Edition.
