Engraved images carved into bluestone suggest fragments of a magnificent tree - shadows of the Tree of Knowledge. Dappled amongst the imagery are literary quotes personally selected by library donors. Each piece contributes to the whole while remaining individual representing the imprint of the community on the plaza.
