Welcome to the Brockton Public Library third floor rotunda.
The murals were painted as a WPA project in 1940-41 by Fritz Fuglister and carefully restored in 2003 by artist/restorer John Arapoff as part of a complete renovation and expansion.
A brief history of the building can be found HERE.

What beautiful murals to grace your public library! The history has been well preserved/restored! I also love the Carnegie features, including that wonderful railing! We have Carnegie buildings in Brooklyn too (our acronym is also BPL!), and while some have been recently restored and renovated, for the most part they have not been very well maintained, which is very sad.
