Richard Haas Murals

The world renowned artist Richard Haas added two striking murals the Main Library's Grand Reading Room, thanks to a generous bequest from Doris Burkley, who taught at the Madison School for many years, and the Lakewood Public Library Foundation. Lakewood's rich and humble history caught the artist's eye as can be seen in the two panels titled City of Schools, Commerce, Industry & Transportation and City of Homes, Apartments and Houses of Worship.
