New murals at Charlestown and Toronto, and Belmont Libraries now colour children’s reading.

Artists’ winning entries were selected for evocative and colourful designs.

Each of the three murals is very different, but they all add colour and life, and really spark the imagination,” said Lake Macquarie City Council Cultural Experiences Coordinator Martin Payne.

They’re part of our ongoing aim to create inviting and comfortable spaces for kids to discover the wonder of reading.”

Artist Nina Katzmarski said the Toronto Library mural, showing children relaxing with a book, was inspired by her Eastern European upbringing, “and some contemporary simplicity”.

I’ve tried to create an artwork that would have resonated with me as a child,” Katzmarski said.

One of my main goals was to create something that inspires and nurtures a love for books and reading.”

The new murals coincide with a refresh of the Lake Macquarie Libraries brand.

Mr. Payne said the new design, with a tagline of “Let’s Grow Our World” was more contemporary and represented the underlying goal of all public libraries.
