On Monday, May 29 (Memorial Day), Hennepin County libraries are closed.
The Linden Hills Library is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and if you peek around the space you’ll spy several historic touches. Among them: this trio of stained glass windows, part of the original architecture created by the Minneapolis firm of Bard & Vanderbilt for the new library in 1931. Ensconced in the clear glass are three yellow letters: L L H, standing for Linden Hills Library. The windows were saved and reused after the library remodel and will help carry on the building’s historic legacy for years to come.
