Giant Green Chair

A giant green easy chair is the perfect spot to curl up with a good book checked out of the library. The chair was donated for the opening of the library by artist Leon Smith.

[Rena Webber, 10/14/2020]

The chair -- an unusual, indoor-style variety -- is eight feet high, and meant to be sat on. Leon built it well; it's been outside for over ten years.
