Ladies and gentlemen, we officially have a name for our new sculpture.
On January 31, 2014, at the Grand Reopening Celebration of the New Niles Public Library, our sculpture was given the name “Perpetual Knowledge”.
Patron Julia Prieto suggested the name with this contest submission:
“This piece of artwork should be called “Perpetual Knowledge” because it describes the hope that libraries offer us as people moving forward through time. This hope is that we will continue to learn and gain knowledge through the resources libraries offer us. Knowledge should be unceasing so that we may continue to better ourselves and one another as a community of people.”
More than 100 patrons filled out entry forms both at the Library and on our website. The Friends of the Niles Library voted on their favorite name at their January meeting.
