Kites on Display @ your library

Photo of kites on display at Eiseley Branch LibraryDuring the month of March, 2003, over 30 kites were on display at the Loren Corey Eiseley Branch Library, 1530 Superior Street. The kites were from the collection of Woody Stovall, a kite collector since 1993.

Included in the display were kites such as:

  • “The Navajo,” a nineteen-foot delta (3 sided) kite made in the U.S.
  • A black and white “Cody Kite,” flown by Samuel Cody, Buffalo Bill’s brother. This kite is a man lifter and was used as an artillery spotter in World War II.
  • “Rokkaku Kite,” is a red, white and blue classic proportion kite originating in China around 900 A.D.
  • Enjoy the diamond and blue butterfly kite made in Bali of silk and bamboo, specifically for the enjoyment of children.
