"they put in all that time, and they donated to the town"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"When artists from Wheaton College went to the Franklin Sculpture Park earlier this month to finish an art installment they had been working on, they found their entire project dismantled. 
The project, which involved hanging 116 blank, Tyvek-covered books onto branches in the park, was meant to commemorate the donation of books from Benjamin Franklin to the town, marking the first public library in the United States. 
The fishing lines are still visible on many tree branches. Wheaton art professor Kelly Goff confirmed that the lines were cut intentionally, but could not provide further detail, aside from the fact that his class was upset by the occurrence. The books were tied high up on some trees, making the action of cutting them down difficult without being noticed at night when the incident allegedly occurred. Police were unable to respond to comment. 
Linda Kabat, former coordinator at the Franklin Arts Center and manager of the Franklin Sculpture Park, said she was disheartened by the incident. She said the artists often expect damage, but this was not the work of a windy day."
