Join the Chelsea District Library in Celebrating Art
Chelsea District Library is committed to celebrating the arts. With local artists featured on the quarterly newsletter, sculptures on the library lawn, live music events, paintings and historic photos within the library, and nationally touring exhibitions, the library strives to make the arts accessible to our community.
Director Lori Coryell shares, “Here at CDL we love to share stories and believe that the art of storytelling happens in a variety of mediums. Whether through song, writing, or visual arts, everybody has a story to tell and your library is a platform for the expression. We believe in the power of the arts to enrich, educate, and inspire—and also create change. The arts make us think, and feel, and perhaps gain new perspectives. We are proud to provide access to these artistic endeavors for our community”.

Collaborative Community Quilt
CDL partners with the C.A.A.D.Y. Corner quilt group to honor the spirit and good work of Trinh Pifer, whose dedication to community inspired the idea. This multigenerational project is open to everyone—beginners and experienced quilters alike. See some of the quilt blocks that were submitted to CDL and the progress of the quilters stitching them together to make the quilt.
