Ames Free Library

"Where the Community Connects"

Tablet

The Ames Free Library is pleased to announce that on July 13th, a new sculpture will be installed on the library's campus. Sculptor Phoebe Knapp, of Billings Montana, created 'Tablet' in 2004. The statue stands 12 feet in height, and is made out of walnut, metal, and copper coated black iron pipe.'Tablet' resembles an open book, and was chosen to represent the importance and lasting grandeur of the written word. It will be placed outside of the Ames Free Library at the west end of the Children's room. The installation is made possible by the generosity of two Easton residents: Elizabeth Ames and Warren Moffit. Elizabeth served as secretary of the Library's Board of Directors for 20 years, and Warren was a lifelong resident of Easton; he and his family were dedicated patrons of the library. On Thursday July 14th at 11:00 there will be a talk by the artist at the installation site and a reception afterwards at Queset House. We hope you will join for this celebration of their wonderful generosity and of the arts here in Easton.
