Lobby Installations


Since 2017, local artist Adriane Binky Donley has dreamed up breathtaking installations for the library lobby. Our community has benefitted from her wonderful work—every time people walk through the front door and are greeted by thousands of hand-painted butterflies soaring from the ceiling or red umbrellas during spring rains or gigantic delicate snowflakes. Most recently she created a huge honeycomb climbing the windows in the lobby!
