A bronze bust sculpted of Mr. Saunders by Deltona, Florida Artist Brian Owens is on display in the reading room area of the library.

Symbols of Mankind

The Robert W. Saunders Library was designed by Architect Russell Minardi and features a lovely stone mural along the entrance wall entitled "Symbols of Mankind." Local artist Joe Testa Secca created the mural to reflect the diversity of the community and the knowledge found within the walls of the building. This magnificent piece of local artwork was restored and re-dedicated by the Friends of the Hillsborough County Library in 1995. When construction begins on the new library, the mural will be incorporated into the exterior (as seen on the architectural rendering to the left of this section).
