In 2007, art gallery space was added to the Community Room of the Cuba Circulating Library. This was made possible by gifts from Jim and Delores Cross, and from Dean Benham in honor of his grandchildren, Jack and Claire Benham. This space is used to highlight the works of local artists.

This collection of works is part of the Artists Among Us Program presented by the Fountain Arts Center, and its host sites. It is a program offering exposure for emerging, professional, and academic artists. It is spearheaded by the Fountain Arts Center, in collaboration with its host sites, who are pleased to introduce artists to your community, and invite you to enjoy the expressions of creative minds. It is sponsored in part by the New York State Council for the Arts, Ralph C Wilson, Jr. Arts & Culture Initiative, Signs & Wonders Studio, Arts Services, Inc. and Fountain Arts Center.
This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrants Program, a regrant program of The New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Arts Council for Wyoming County.
