The GFWC Lilburn Woman’s Club presented Gwinnett County Public Library with a check for $10,000 for the Lilburn Branch. The funding will be directed to the children’s area where a large mural will be installed under the direction of Good Day Art Studio in Lilburn.
LWC Co-President Trish Biemiller feels that a library should always feel like a happy, safe place for children to engage their imagination. “As a retired Gwinnett County Media Specialist, there is nothing more endearing than seeing a child surrounded by a pile of books and lost in thought or entranced in a storytime activity,” says Biemiller.
“We are pleased to partner with the Lilburn Woman’s Club to provide this artistic mural which will enhance the children’s area in our Lilburn Branch,” says GCPL Executive Director Charles Pace.
The mural will include scenes of Old Lilburn viewed through the windows of a train. LWC members will be trained to help paint some of the background imagery. Installation is expected to be completed by the end of August.
