About the Gallery 

The Watertown Free Public Library hosts monthly exhibits on the 2nd floor of the library in the T. Ross Kelly Family Gallery. The gallery bears the name of Mr. Kelly, a longtime resident of Watertown and significant donor to the library building fund. He has been an award winning professor of chemistry at Boston College for over forty years, active in Watertown affairs as a town meeting member under that earlier form of government, and a volunteer at the Museum of Science.  He and his family are regular library users and supporters.
