As you can see from the above slideshow, the mural began to come to life, brushstroke by brushstroke. As the end of May approached, the mural neared completion. In the pic below the panels are standing side by side so that minor adjustments to positioning and carry-over of design could be finalized.

On June 23 all the members of the Guild were invited to a vernissage and members who had worked on the project signed their names to the completed mural before the varnishing took place.

Thursday, July 9, 2009 Mayor John W. Meaney and the members of Council invited the MADP painters and other guests to a reception at the municipal library to view the completed mural in the children's section before it was stored, awaiting completion of the library renovations before it was officially installed. At the ceremony, Mayor Meaney stated, "This colossal undertaking has come to fruition in a little over a year and has been, without a doubt, a labor of love. It is a gift to Kirkland residents that will be cherished by young and old alike, hopefully for many generations to come."

Renovations to the library were completed in the fall of 2010. The windows on top were eliminated to protect the mural colours and special lights were installed. The Official Open House was held on October 23rd, 2010 all day. Our mural is now in the Children's Section of the Kirkland library for all to see and enjoy. Below is a 'stitched together' set of pictures one of our members took, to show the entire mural installed. Visit the library soon and see all your favorite storybook characters!
