First Book in the Sculpture Stack

At the Annual General Meeting on the 13th of May, Judson Meraw provided a view of the book stack sculpture that he and Tor Baxter are building to stand in front of the Julius Firehall, the home of the new library-to-be.  They had five books to show, but none yet painted.  Today, they are all five painted and the first title was being put on the spine by Jack Lubzinski.  They expect the first five books, all finished, to be on site and in full public view by mid-June.  Eventually, there will be 15 such books in the stack, each with a different title.  More books will appear as more money is raised.  At today's counting, we have raised over $162,000, with five four $10,000 contributors now putting their names in the Founders' Circle.  That's almost 1/3 of the way, which is to say Five Big Books worth!
