Long Description:
Cette sculpture des plus inusitées, créée par les mains expertes de Bill Kidwell, sculpteur, et Alain Durocher, concepteur, est un amalgame de trois imposants troncs de chêne, encastrées d’une douzaine de tablettes destinées aux livres lesquels sont protégés des intempéries par des vitrines en plexiglas. Déja garni de bouquins de toutes sortes (documentaires, romans, livres pour enfants et adolescents, recueils de nouvelles...) provenant des employés de la bibliothèque de Mont-Laurier et de dons anonymes, l'Arbre à livres accroche le regard des lecteurs et suscite le goût de la lecture. Les gens sont invités à prendre des livres et à en apporter également. Le tout gratuitement !

Book tree sculpture. It is made from trees cut at varying heights and bolted together to mimic a tree cluster in the forest. Three or four rectangular box shelves are carved into each trunk. The wooden boxes are protected from the elements by heavy plastic flaps that are hung over the openings. Visitors can open the plastic flaps to browse the books left inside, or add their own.
