                As you enter the children's section of the library, you walk under a beautifully painted arch with colored lights that blink on. With her extra-ordinary talent, Lisa Mandle created  a wonderland entrance to the world of children's books, children's stories and children's imagination.
                 

                "The inspiration for the illustrated arch to the children's section came from the beloved children's book The Secret Garden with a focus less on illustrating any specific children, rather to decorate and embellish the entrance with beauty found in nature; plants, trees, flowers, animals and birds. I also wanted to include the door to the garden open, with the key in the lock, and a stack of favorite books on a tree stump inviting all to enter and partake in the joy of reading and imagination."
