On Monday and Tuesday, December 24 and 25 (Christmas Eve and Christmas Day), Hennepin County libraries are closed.

This artwork melds old and new, mixing the traditional art of stained glass with a more modern, abstract design that calls to mind a cog or a Native American dream catcher. (As artist Phil Daniel describes it, it’s an “anime take on a classic Rose Window.”) If you lean in for a closer look, you’ll also see a literary layer to the artwork. Words by C.S. Lewis, Rudyard Kipling and others have been delicately etched into the mouth-blown glass—all favorite quotes and poems submitted by library patrons.
