This print depicts the Westport Library in full swing as it is surrounded by burgeoning foliage and bustling patrons presumed to enjoy the library's space and resources. The sun illuminates the building's stone and shingle architecture that is reminiscent of the trees flanking it, indicating a natural harmony between the building and its environment. The artist's use of light achieves a vibrancy and livelihood of atmosphere that reads like a testament to the institution's service to society.
