Let the Wild Rumpus Continue...
Did you know that
Michael Hagen, an internationally recognized scenic painter, produced the 46-foot-mural enhancing the garden area and two freestanding scenes located outside the library's Children's Room. The mural inside the library is also recognized as the seventh stop along the Sally Salamander Walking Tour of downtown Columbia, produced by the Leadership Columbia class of 2009.
Today, Friday, May 11, 2012, join Richland County Public Library as they pay tribute to Maurice Sendak. Wear a Wild Things t-shirt and share your memories of Sendak and his books. Don't have one? They're available at all RCPL locations for $15 (adult sizes) and $10 (children's sizes).
Join the conversation online and snap a photo to send to Padgett Mozingo at pmozingo@myRCPL.com or share it via Facebook or Twitter. (Thanks to Richland County Public Library for the t-shirt -- here's our photo to share -- as we caught our president and CEO, Ric Luber, 'in the wild' in the lobby of Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center!)
"What he's given to children and parents all over the world and all of us here at Richland County Public Library who have the joy of being surrounded by his artwork every day, is amazing."
- Melanie Huggins, Executive Director, Richland County Public Library
