"Faraway Places," by Gary Lee Price, a beautiful bronze statue of a young girl sitting on a stack of books. Presented by Vince and Skip Mancini, the statue was given in honor of the Sosuntee Club, who in 1921 pioneered a love of books and reading into the hearts and minds of countless young people in Haskell County. The statue is displayed on a custom cabinet that was designed by Vince and constructed by Lawrence Hoerman. Skip designed and made the glass insert in the door. Skip was inspired by the young girl with her hair pulled back into a ponytail, reminding her of herself as a girl and her love for reading. Vince was the architect on the new addition of the library.
This picture of Vince and Skip Mancini was taken at the Haskell Township Library's Open House and Ribbon Cutting on July 15, 2014.
