The Story of the Mural

In fall 2021, JCPL's graphic designer for 33 years, Amy Kitchen, suggested putting a mural on the "Book Barn." Amy's vision was for it to become a "destination photo spot." JCPL was heartbroken when she died in October 2022. At that time, the JCPL Book Barn mural was already in the works with JCCF.

"We are so grateful for the opportunity to make Amy's dream come true. We think she would have been over the moon with delight at the designs selected," said JCPL director Lisa Lintner.
