Fourteen painted murals adorn the North Lobby of the Hatcher Library. These murals, which were recently restored to their original bright colors, have been present since the building opened in 1920. The mural that faces visitors when they enter the building contains a quote from Thomas a Kempis' De Imitatione Christi. "Una vox librorum sed non omnes aeque informat." (Translation: The voice of books is one but informeth not all alike.) [15; 18]
