Four original works of art were commissioned to adorn Woodbourne Library. In the summer of 2017, artists with ties to the Miami Valley were invited to propose newly created artworks, of any medium, that would reflect the communities of Centerville/Washington Township and the Modernist tradition of Woodbourne Library. From nearly 50 submissions, a committee of local citizens with artistic knowledge and expertise and Library Trustees selected these four works:
Special thanks to these artists for helping make the Library even more interesting and beautiful.
- Roasted Pepper Hummus & Toasted Crustinis
- Scratch Sweet Potato Chips with Carmelized Onion & Chive Dip
- Smoked Chicken Salad Profiteroles
- The Ultimate Vegetable Crudites
- Roasted Tomato Bruschetta with Shaved Parmesan
- Carnitas Tostadas
- Build Your Own Macaroni and Cheese Station
- Dorothy Lane Market Killer Brownie™ Bites
Catered by: Scratch Events
Special thanks to Forte, Centerville High School’s nationally recognized a capella group, and local musician Jim McCutcheon for providing musical entertainment for this evening.
With feedback solicited in a series of community forums, Woodbourne Library has been expanded by approximately 10,000 sq. ft. and completely renovated. It was designed to meet the needs of Library users now and in the future, while retaining the Mid-century Modern elements that make it an architectural treasure.
Come see how we have:
- Redesigned the Library to fit changing patron needs, including adding a Creativity Space, quiet reading room, children’s garden, and a teen room.
- Responded to community requests for meeting space, including a Community Room and five meeting rooms/quiet rooms, all available for use by the public.
- Revived the interior with four original works of art from local artists, paint, carpet and new furnishings.
- Resolved barriers to using the Library with expanded parking and a drive-up book return.
- Restored the iconic sunscreen.
Proceeds from the event will help fund projects that will continue to enhance the Library experience. Learn more about sponsorship.
Please join us in thanking these individuals and organizations for their generous support!
