If you follow Shawn Dunwoody, the Central Library, or the Fruit Belt Project on social media you may have heard about their recent campaign to seek the public's input for a mural. Followers were asked to submit a word or phrase that inspired them (words to live by) or a word or phrase that would describe what the library means to them using "#inspireROC".
Maybe you even submitted a word or phrase yourself.
The walls surrounding the Dorris Carlson Reading Garden are now beautifully illustrated with positive words describing our beloved library, "unlimited possibilities", "best kept secret", "paradise", "free", and other positive words and phrases such as "Be Grateful, Be Thankful".
For more information, check out the Democrat & Chronicle's recent article and then head to the Central Library to see the murals for yourself.
If you've never been inside these walls, take your lunch break in the Dorris Carlson Reading Garden in June on Tuesdays for their June Jazz Combos.
