13. Volumes of Giving

Previous | Index | Next

Walk towards the stairs and you will notice an imposing tower of books. This public art sculpture, "Volumes of Giving" was created by well-known local artists Ron and Lynda Baird. The sculpture is 3.6 metres high and consists of 156 books. Jane Buckles, another local artist, created the cat and mouse on the top of the stacks of books.

The cat and mouse were recently the subject of a mascot contest. The winning names were submitted by Katherine Robertson. Hyde and Squeak are happy inhabitants of the Library.

"Volumes of Giving" is a fund raising project. The late Karen Ruppel, who served on the library board for more than a decade, was the inspiration for this project. The dedication ceremony took place on June 14th, 1997.
