Tiny Library Patrons

Outside the main Cleveland Public Library are a group of miniature statues representing library patrons. Some are carrying books, some are reading, others are climbing a fence or carrying letters of the alphabet. These little statues were made by artist Thomas Otterness and they can be found along the library's sidewalk on Superior Avenue.

Tom Otterness is also responsible for the memorable Tribute to NYC's Sewer Alligator.
