With the end of the year fast approaching, the votes are still coming in for your favorite HML moment of 2014!
(You can vote here.)
In order to build the suspense as much as possible, we’ll start with the 9th place vote-getter, with 3 percent.
But before we do, as you may know, the Library is currently in a difficult financial situation, and any support you can provide would be greatly appreciated. To make a tax-deductible donation — anything helps, truly — click here.
OK, now back to business.
I must say I’m slightly disappointed by this one’s showing, but with so many options to choose from, I guess something has to end up in 9th place (though there’s still time to change it!)
Let it’s set it up for you.
Volunteer-for-Life Peery came to us this summer from San Francisco, via Tennessee, and immediately won our hearts with her warmth, artistic brilliance, and joie de vie (that’s French for “biscuits and gravy.)
And Peery had an idea: to create an HML community mural. And create a community mural is exactly what she did. Here are some pictures below. It took about 2 days to create — a giant, swooping California condor coasting over…the coast — with the help of kids from the area as well as folks just passing through.
And Peery’s community mural, rightly or wrongly, clocked in at #9 in the “Ten Best Moments of 2014!”
