More than a dozen students recently completed a unique art project at the Dalton Community Library. Students, under the direction of Lackawanna Trail Elementary Center art teacher Dan Demora, worked each Thursday from mid-June to Aug. 1 to complete the tile mosaic inspired by the Electric City Trolley Museum in Scranton. The mosaic depicts a trolley emerging from a tunnel, a conductor, and a trolley station. Members of the library’s board of directors will decide on a permanent home for the mosaic in the near future. The nearly $3,000 project was paid for by the Dalton Community Library and made possible through sponsorships from the Lackawanna Heritage Valley National and State Heritage Area in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the National Park Service.
