Have you been upstairs?The second floor at Mesa Public Library reveals a whole, almost separate aspect of the library’s many gifts to the community: the 1,000-square-foot art gallery. “We’ve had a history of wonderful, wonderful art,” said Carol Meine, who has served as activities director since 2003. She said the current gallery began displaying pieces in 1994, and that the former library building also contained a gallery dedicated to local and regional work.One of her favorite parts of the job, Meine said, is finding exhibitors to fill the unique, well-lit space. As artist Catherine Thayer said, “It’s just a beautiful space. It’s a pleasure to show there.”Thayer showed at the library in September.
