Wondering what’s going to happen to all of the trees around the library once construction starts? Through an innovative partnership with two KU professors, logs from the trees will be salvaged and sawn into lumber. The wood will then be distributed to area artists and craftsmen, selected via a juried application process. These artists and craftsmen will create art objects and furniture from the wood, which will be exhibited and then auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting the Friends of the Library. More details to come soon.
The library will be closed July 9 to July 25 as we move to our new building. Visit us at 707 Vermont St. starting Saturday, July 26!
