On Monday, February 20 (Presidents Day), Hennepin County libraries are closed.
by Douglas Lew, 2005
This watercolor painting by library patron Doug Lew shows a sweet scene befitting its location: a mother-daughter book club. The artist plays with light and color as he celebrates the connection that comes from sharing a world of imagination and learning. The piece also memorializes a particular teen book-lover, Christie Blackwood; it was installed in 2006 on what would have been her 16th birthday.
“I strive to achieve a sense of fore and lightness, of energy and ease, a careful carelessness and a sense of the poetic.”
