The talented Idyllwild Mountain Quilters have created two quilts to celebrate the Idyllwild Library Centennial.   The Idyllwild Library’s 100th birthday is July 27, 2020.

The first quilt depicts the “Mary Reads Dickens” statue in front of the library, which was donated by Steve Moulton, the owner of the statue, to Riverside County for installation at the new Idyllwild Library.  Steve had the statue created to honor Mary Austin, the late wife of Doug Austin, for the couple’s generous work in the Idyllwild community.  Jan Jaspers-Fayer designed the statue, and Dore Capitani was the artist who sculpted it.

The second quilt celebrates Dr. Seuss, the famous author/illustrator of numerous well-loved children’s books.

Opportunity tickets are currently being sold.  All ticket sales benefit the Friends of the Idyllwild Library for their many contributions to the library.  Tickets are $5 each or five for $20.
