DIRECTOR'S DESK

Thanks to an anonymous donor, the library has a new piece of artwork on display.  A bronze sculpture of a winsome young man reading now graces the children's area of the library.  Sculpted by Gary Price in 1996, the piece is number 216 in a series.  The bronze was given to the library in memory of Jean H. Truslow.

Over the years the library has acquired a number of art works that you may not notice on your regular trips in and out of the building. The ornately framed oils hanging over the perimeter stacks are from the estate of Thomas W. Lauderdale. The gilt clock and candlelabra in the Carolina Room are also pieces from his estate as well as the paintings hanging in that room.
An original Audubon print of blue birds hangs in the front office and was left to the library by Edward McMaster in memory of his uncle Fitz Hugh McMaster.
Several Anne Worsham Richardson bird prints were donated to the library by the Inquirendo Club in memory of members Lucille McMaster and Lucy Hill Doty Elliott.
Hanging over the dictionary stand is an original painting of the Town Clock done in 1960 by Russell Henderson and presented to the library during the time he lived in Winnsboro.
A Madonna and Child hanging on the back wall of the building was given in memory of Spencer McMaster Ford.
Each of these pieces adds character to our building and provides enjoyment for our patrons.
As always, feel free to reach me at the library by phone (635-4971), by fax (635-7715), or by email (sarah@fairfield.lib.sc.us).
