Grace Baik, a 2017 WFBHS graduate, illustrated this new banner for the LMC website. When Grace and I started working together on this idea, she had many fitting illustrations to offer. However, I suspected that this particular illustration was her first response to how she views books and libraries.
Having known Grace as an elementary student, I knew that she was a voracious reader. I recall that she often checked out the maximum amount of books each week but if given the opportunity, she would have checked out more. She was always open to any book suggestion I had to offer. Basically, if was in book form, Grace would read it. This is, ultimately, why I selected this image. I knew that it came from Grace. I knew that it was a reflection of her feelings toward the act of reading.
As we all know, libraries are not just books. Libraries are places of personal curiosity and discovery. So within this library website you may access digital books (Overdrive), databases (articles, magazines, etc.), reading recommendations (READ tab), and the library catalog (physical books).
Grace's lovely illustration serves as a reminder to the curious to continue to move toward knowledge and discovery, especially in the rain.
