The Orion Township Public Library has anonymously received a third donation of a life-size, one-of-a-kind bronze sculpture of two little boys, each holding a book and pointing toward the library’s front doors.
The Sculpture, “Books, Most Wonderful Friend in the World,” was created by local sculptor Suzanne Young with the Fine Arts Sculpture Centre, and is currently on display near the garden just outside the front entrance to the library.
Young earned her Masters of Fine Arts degree from Eastern Michigan University.
“Patrons are welcome to come see this beautiful addition to the library,” said Karen Knox, Orion Library director. “This is such a wonderful way for someone to leave their legacy in the community.”
Posters are currently being produced to outline the process of creating the sculpture and will be on display soon at the library.
