New library story pole speaks volumes to community spirit
July 13, 2022
Swinomish master carver Kevin Paul's latest work, a carved and painted thematic totem story pole was installed near the new La Conner Swinomish Library entrance July 7.
βItβs really a landmark,β said La Conner Regional Library Board of Directors Secretary Robert Hancock, who attended the hour-long installation and brief ceremony afterward. βItβs something that people coming to town will want to have their picture taken with.β
The tall and graceful pole symbolizes unity and a reverence for lifelong learning and personal growth. Son-in-law Camas Logue was Paulβs assistant.
