LWC 2017Lilburn Woman's Club Donates $10,000 to Gwinnett Public Library

The Lilburn Woman's Club recently gave the Gwinnett County Public Library a check for $10,000 for the Lilburn Branch.

The money will go to the children's area where a large mural will be installed under the direction of Good Day Art Studio in Lilburn.

Co-President Trish Biemiller  stated 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 story time activity," Biemiller said.

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.

"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," GCPL Executive Director Charles Pace said.
