Art & Music in the Gallery

Since 1901, the Lawrence Library has hosted art exhibitions and live music performances.


The Gallery hosts a new exhibit every month. Annual highlights are the Squanicook Colonial Quilt Guild show in the spring, and the student art show in the summer. In December, the Gallery transforms into a winter wonderland!
See video of past shows on our YouTube channel.

Upcoming shows:
October - Stephen Lewis Posters: Art for a Cause
November - Family Ties: Artwork by Charlotte Andry Gibbs and Rembs Layman

Open Mic Nights

Open Mic Night, a well-attended music venue, kicks off its 11th year. It is hosted on the 3rd Friday of the month by guest emcees. Our September emcee is Steve St. Lawrence. The doors open at 6:30 PM, come play or listen!

Free Concerts

On tour from Scotland - North Sea Gas is one of Scotland’s most popular folk bands, with great vocals and tremendous three part harmonies. Guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bouzouki, harmonica, whistles, bodhrans, banjo, and good humour are all part of the entertainment. They have received Gold and Silver Disc awards from the Scottish Music Industry Association and regularly have sold out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and around the world!

Open Mic Nights and free concerts are Friends of the Library sponsored programs (unless otherwise noted.)
They are held in the intimate, smoke-free environment of the Art Gallery. Fantastic acoustics draw musicians and listeners from throughout New England.

All of our music programs are free and open to the public. Light refreshments are available; coffee provided by
Starbucks Coffee, Nashua, NH.
We welcome donations for PACH, our local food pantry,
at all of our music programs.
