The wooden sign over the library entrance was made by Ferdinando Codognotto, an Italian wood carver whose studio is in Rome, Italy. The sign was commissioned in March 2013 during Dana Hall’s spring break trip to Italy and brought back to the United States in July 2013 by Library Director Liz Gray. It was made in two pieces, both of which are signed and dated by the artist. Codognotto’s works are in both private and public collections worldwide. The two photos to the right show the window of Cognotto’s studio and the artist with Latin teacher Jacqui Bloomberg (note her wooden sunflower necklace!).
