A couple of years ago I took a photo of the outside glass mural that graces one of the walls of the Takoma Park Public Library but I took that picture when it was cloudy outside. I’ve been back to that particular library numerous times for a variety of reasons but I haven’t gotten around to taking a picture of that same mural when it’s sunny outside until recently.

Below is a closeup of a portion of that mural.

The library is surrounded with trees, which were producing some nice looking late fall foliage.

The foliage on this tree was pretty striking to look at.

Underneath this particular tree is a small memorial dedicated to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Gracing one of the walls of the library are four book-shaped wire statues which has the word “read” written in four different languages.

The library is pretty cozy itself, especially in the book area.

Currently there are plans being drawn where the library would undergo renovation. One of two options are being considered, with both options displayed for the general public to look at. A friend of mine who works at this library told me that they probably won’t begin renovations for at least two years.
