Peace & Friendship

Peace flags bannerWhat does Peace mean?

What does friendship look like?

Explore these ideas with local artist and educator Heny Taraz. Create your own flag that represents what peace and friendship mean to you. Flags will be installed on the library’s Main Level Idea Wall at a reception on May 7th and may be taken home when the exhibit comes down in early June.

This project was inspired by Tibetan prayer flags. In this tradition, messages of peace, strength, and compassion are written on flags so that they are carried on the wind, to the benefit of all. Add your flag to send your messages of peace to everyone in our community!

The Eric Jordan Moskow Memorial Fund was founded in 2016 by the generous gift of Richard and Shirley Moskow to the endowment of Cary Memorial Library. The Fund celebrates the life of the Moskow’s son Eric, who as a young student at the Munroe School and in their neighborhood on Slocum Road met the world with an open-hearted spirit, love of learning, and transcendent gift for friendship. The Fund supports library programs for young children that promote the values of peace and friendship, and touch on literature, the performing arts, social studies, math, engineering, science, and disciplines yet to be discovered.
