Mural

The Laurens County Library has two murals in the children’s area of the library. They were done as a memorial for Margaret Haynes who served as children’s librarian for thirty-one years until her retirement in 1995. One of the murals depicts the Owings train depot and a caboose disappearing into a tunnel. It is placed near the Reading Train, a popular feature in the library. The other mural fills an entire wall with the flora and fauna of a rain forest. Laurens artist Skip Shelton and assistants painted the murals.
