Plugging the library

Ocean Shores artist Susan LaMadrid transforms a fire hydrant in front of the Ocean Shores Library into a bookworm, in anticipation of the library’s reopening early next month. The library has been closed since July for an expansion project that has been funded entirely by donations. Meanwhile, the Ocean Shores Fire Department continues its “Adopt a Hydrant” plug painting project, in which anyone can participate by stopping by the Fire Station, next door to the library, for information and applications.
