Dinosaur sculptures memorialize frequent LPL patron

These dinosaur sculptures, created by John Kennedy, sit outside the Liverpool Public Library. They're the product of a gift from benefactor Ann Alger, longtime LPL patron, who left a bequest to the library when she passed away in 2011.

— Polly has high hopes for the dinosaurs’ involvement in community affairs.

“Some people want to put orange scarves around them when SU plays, or wreathes during the holidays,” she said. “We may see things like that happen. I hope the community is going to be able to embrace them.”

Some in the community have an even grander vision. A young boy who was present during the installation of the Protoceratops asked when the library was going to get a T-Rex. Polly told him she’d work on it. The important message, according to Polly, is that, “the library is not a dinosaur, but you can sit on one outside of our building.”
