It’s a wrap!

Local student artwork that now graces signal box in Lynnwood pays honor to libraries.

A new piece of artwork in Lynnwood celebrates the local library.

Students and library boosters took part in a ribbon cutting Nov. 10 for the latest signal box wrap, at the northeast corner of 194th Street and 44th Avenue outside the Lynnwood Police Station. “Libraries Are For Everyone!” features artwork from the top 37 student winners of a Friends of the Lynnwood Library poster contest.

The wrap was a collaboration of the Lynnwood Arts Commission and Friends of the Lynnwood Library. The young artists and readers hailed from Beverly, Cedar Valley, College Place, Hazelwood, Hilltop, Lynndale, Lynnwood, Martha Lake, Meadowdale, Oak Heights and Spruce elementary schools.

Elsewhere in the city this year, Lynnwood also installed a “Fire Protection” wrap and a “Sister City” wrap. The city’s first signal box wrap was installed in 2016 outside Big Lots on 196th Street and includes art from sixth-graders at Cedar Valley Community School. The school helped again with another wrap in 2017 by Wilcox Park.
