New Stained-Glass Windows to be Dedicated at Macon County Public Library on May 10th

PRESS RELEASE (05-03-2023) 
Friends of the Macon County Public Library

Friends of the Macon County Public Library Host Stained-glass Dedication Ceremony May 10

FRANKLIN – The Friends of the Macon County Public Library will host a public dedication ceremony to celebrate the installation of new stained-glass windows from 5 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 10, at the Macon County Public Library, 149 Siler Farm Rd. in Franklin.

Two original stained-glass windows have been added to the décor in the Library’s Living Room. Local stained-glass artist John Phillips of Fire & Light Studio designed and created the panels depicting native plant species. The design includes flowers and foliage identified by naturalist William Bartram during his travels in the area during the late 1700s, including flame azalea, mountain camellia, catawba rhododendron and dogwood.

A short program is planned to recognize donors Gene and Nancy Cottrell, who donated the stained-glass window at the old Wayah Street library, and the Friends of the Macon County Public Library. The Cottrells planned to design and create windows for the Siler Farm Road library, but the project was delayed. Instead, they donated $5,000 so that the library could commission another artist for the project. The Friends of the Macon County Public Library paid the balance of the project.

Established in 1971, the Friends of the Macon County Public Library seek to develop and maintain citizen interest and participation in the growth and development of the Macon County Public Library and to stimulate the use of the library’s resources and services. The Friends raise money to support library programs and the purchase of equipment and technology through memberships, donations and bookstore sales.
