The Library’s Overnight Artist

Drawing of custodians as superheroes

Like a spider who works to build or repair a web at night, Mark Fortuna, the evening custodian for the library, has created small art masterpieces for staff and students to enjoy. Do you remember the book Charlotte’s Web? In the book Charlotte, a spider uses her silk and talent to save Wilber the pig. Overnight she would weave works of art designed to grab attention and promote Wilbur as some terrific, radiant, and humble pig. These webs of positivity would grab people’s attention, and they would marvel at her creativity, skill, dedication, and love for her friend. Her creations not only saved Wilbur’s life but also brought joy and happiness to the people who saw them.

If you have not stopped by the library lately, you have been missing out on our very own nocturnal artist. Like Charlotte, Mark Fortuna, the library’s evening custodian, has been using his imagination, talent, and skills to bring smiles and joy to those who come into the library. Some morning when we arrive, we find that our resident artist has created another drawing on one of the whiteboards for us to enjoy. Last week he drew an image called “Super Custodians.” In this drawing, he featured himself and others as superheroes which rings true as we certainly all believe that Mark is a super person!
