Downers Grove Public Library Announces: Kids Room Mural Dedication


Artist John McDavitt returned to the Downers Grove Public Library to design a new mural in the Kids Room. The mural, dedicated in front of 100 attendees on June 11, depicts an aerial view of the library with books flying from its doors, their stories emerging the pages mid-flight. A big thank you to John for the creativity and hard work spent creating this inspiring piece. See the mural’s progress step-by-step at or come in to see it in person.



The mural was generously funded by the Library Foundation. To support the Library Foundation’s future projects, visit
