This question has nothing to do with films, but I thought I would try to
take advantage of the copyright experts on this list.

Our library system has hired an artist to paint a mural in the lobby of our
newest branch. The artist would like to photograph a picture of books on
the shelf and use that in the mural. The picture would be of the spines of
the books, not the front covers. Is this legal or should we ask the artist
to make up his own titles? Thanks in advance!
