Muralist, illustrator, and product designer John McDavitt created the mural, titled Soaring, in the Kids Room in 2017. Books are flying from the library doors while the characters emerge from their pages midflight in this whimsical mural seen from a bird’s eye view. With its attention to detail, each open book tells its own story. The mural was generously paid for by the Downers Grove Public Library Foundation.
Soaring, Kids Room Mural is a donation from the Downers Grove Public Library Foundation.
