On August 25th , 2017 we finally dedicated and laid down 12 beautiful bronze Leaves outside Central Library for book-loving beloved community members. Pastor Rick Reynolds of Operation Nightwatch presided, and we were joined by many friends, supporters, and library staff and denizens. Library staff, we’ve learned, respectfully consider homeless people to be their “daily readers.”
