How a Lightning Strike Unveiled a Fox at the Dundee Library

In July, one of the large cottonwood trees that had stood proudly in front of the Dundee Library was struck by lightning during a summer storm. While it was not completely split, it was significantly weakened. Because the tree is so close to the building, we knew it had to come down. We were disappointed, but we do our best to turn negatives into positives here at FRVPLD, so we decided to explore the idea of transforming the tree into a sculpture that would add some character and prominence to our front yard.

Enter the Celebrate Diversity Art Contest by Oct. 15

Your library has a blank space on its wall, and what's missing is a work of art celebrating the diversity of our library district.

We serve 70,000 residents in the villages of Carpentersville, East Dundee, West Dundee, Gilberts, Sleepy Hollow, and parts of Algonquin, Barrington Hills, and Elgin. We're looking to you to share an original work of art, in any medium, that represents your vision of our diverse community.
