The new Niles Public Library sculpture, now located in the renovated Commons area on the first floor, was created by well known Chicago artist Terry Karpowicz. Funded by the Friends of the Niles Public Library, the artwork stands 15-feet high and is constructed from red cedar wood. Located in the stairway atrium, the sculpture is best viewed close up. Visitors to both the lower and upper levels of the Niles Public Library will have views of the artwork from a variety of angles. The artist likens the work to a giant puzzle, with each piece separate and independent, but joined together to create a whole, much like the Niles Library community.
