This artwork came from cooperation between the Toledo Soldiers Memorial Association, which provided the base, and the Toledo- Lucas County Public Library, which commissioned the bronze sculpture. It was dedicated July 4, 1986.
The flame sculpture, designed and executed by Phyllis Nordin, represents the light of knowledge. Its symbolic illumination enlightens and entertains the lives of those it reaches, The library is proud to participate in that experience.
