The Heritage Wall in the library’s Community Room was created by local artist S. Joseph Sharnetsky. It recognizes 50 families and groups who contributed at least $10,000 to the Building Fund for the library and who have been in North Idaho for at least 50 years. It also offers 90 photos of more than 100 years of local history. An interactive computer kiosk provides information about the photos and names listed on the wall. Near the main entrance to the Community Room is the Louise Shadduck Legacy Wall, commemorating the life of this local author, historian, community activist, and political leader. Ms. Shadduck served as the Honorary Chairman for the Capitol Campaign to complete the library. The bronze bust of Ms. Shadduck was created by Coeur d’Alene sculptor Terry Lee and was commissioned by her friends Bart and Pat Templeman.
