Art at the Lafayette Library and Learning Center

Brian Goggin’s towering bronze of stacked books, "Speechless," is an impressive welcome to Library visitors walking through the plaza at First Street and Golden Gate Way.

 

Standing almost 16 feet tall, pages of books cast with actual literary passages seem to soar heavenward as you make your way into the Library entrance. Inside, an array of engaging artwork adorns the walls for Library visitors to enjoy.
