The outdoor Reading Garden has three main features:
- The “Turning Page” trellis by Christopher Pardell. This monumental sculpture reflects the community’s commitment to books and learning.
- Water cascades over two beautiful basalt columns at the back wall of the garden, bringing peace and serenity to this delightful area.
- The wall enclosing the garden includes layers of handmade tiles, found objects, pebbles and more by Betsy Schulz. The piece represents the sedimentary layers of the earth. Poems and quotes screened onto tiles express the theme in words. How we live on the land and use it will eventually get recycled or reinterpreted into something new. From this soil grows plants, communities, new ideas, libraries.
