Library, Arts & Cultural Museum

Here at N4CS, we have the unique offering of hosting both a library and museum within our facility.
The Center area that is dedicated to arts/culture is The Lula & Garrett Hess Library, which houses The Russell C. and Ann E. Seward Museum.


We strive to offer residents of Benton and the surrounding communities programs and opportunities relating to the arts, culture and heritage of our area. We are always looking for new ideas and new programs! If you have an idea for a program we can provide please contact us today! In addition to the library and museum area, we also have a small computer lab space available and open to the public for use.

Throughout the year, our library area plays host to a rotating art exhibit from local artists. Free viewing is offered anytime during the Centers normal business hours. Keep on the lookout for more programming through the Columbia County Traveling Library!
