Making Downey beautiful

Library Electrical Box

The Downey City Library has been serving the community for over 50 years. I noticed the other day on one of my morning bike rides, that they have curbside service on Brookshire. Oh wait, that’s actually an electrical box painted to look like bookshelves!

The City Council authorized a campaign recently to make Downey more beautiful. You can see this fun take on the movement with these splashes of color all around Downey. To learn more about this project, see The Downey Patriot - Public art coming to a theater near you.
“I go into my library, and all history unrolls before me.”
