4' x 5' Bronze sheet metal. This sculpture represents the valuable role that the Margaret Welch Memorial Library provides for the betterment of the community. It reflects the library, its missions and its relationship to the community. The book represents learning, the hand tree represents the library, which supports the community in the leaf area, and the knowledge is passed onto the next generation. (baby at the top)


The library wanted a sculpture that would depict their purpose and goals. They needed the piece to be weather resistant to Northern Minnesota.
