Lamar Public Library Unveils New Mural in Children’s Section

Lynn Lefferdink, was a former library board member, and childhood literacy was her lifelong passion! The Lamar Literacy Foundation has received memorial contributions in Mrs. Lefferdink’s name along with several of her friends who worked tirelessly to promote literacy in Prowers County. The Friends of the Lamar Public Library and Library Director, Debbie Reynolds, have found a unique way to have these individuals remembered. Instead of a plaque they have recruited local artist, Katherine Dewitt, to add her special touch in a floor to ceiling painting; that encourages children to read. The mural, which is located in the children’s section, will soon be completed once the names of these individuals have been added. Lamar Public Library would like to encourage everyone to stop in and see this very beautiful memorial wall.
