Chainsaw story time

Chainsaw story time. πŸ“šπŸ¦‰πŸ˜€ Lumberjack artist @lilpaulbunyan has been causing quite a β€œbuzz” at the Main Library. He carved two magnificent new benches for the library's outdoor story time grove. They're true works of art, delighting children and grownups alike. The redwood logs were reclaimed from a local tree removal project. They're sure to bring joy to Menlo Park for generations to come!
