Community rallies around library with art after vandalism incident
March 30, 2019 — The Siuslaw Public Library turned an act of vandalism into an opportunity for art and free speech this week, as community members of all ages helped create public art to place over the library’s recently broken windows.
A total of eight pieces of “pop-up” art were hung over the library’s recently destroyed windows, with each panel representing differing questions such as “What do you love about the library?” and “What do you love about where you live?”
“So many people stopped by with their sadness about the windows and asked what they could do,” Siuslaw Library Director Meg Spencer said. “When something like the breakage happens, it can be easy to forget how much the library is loved, and how much our patrons do really care about the library. It was great for people to get a chance to express that.”
