Post Art Library is your PAL for arts-related library stuff! We’re a 501(c)3 not-for-profit that provides arts & cultural library exhibits, programming, resources, and services to Joplin and the surrounding area.
Travel back in time with our primary resources, admire the work of local artists in our gallery, check-out our arts magazines, and more.
Although we emphasize information and specialized research, we provide creative arts programming, as well as a flexible space that showcases local established and emerging artists.
Simply stated, we’re on a mission to enrich the community of Joplin by perpetuating Dr. Winfred L. & Elizabeth C. Post’s love of art, architecture, history, and historic preservation. And their love of Joplin.
Current Exhibits: Beauties of the Prairie by Ann Butts, Pysanky (Hungarian Easter Eggs) by Carolyn Trout, Brazed & Welded Sculptures by Jim Jackson, and "The Peace Canoe," a third grade collaborative project...
