Mr. Twain Again
The library underwent a major expansion in the 1990s. This sculpture was put in storage for safekeeping, and the library forgot to save a place for it in front of the building,. When someone finally remembered the statue, it was placed around back, next to the trash cans.
Finally, in 2010 the library's director was able to make arrangements with a private donor to pay to relocate Mark Twain back to a place of honor in front of the library.
