    Where is the George Tsutkawa fountain?

      It’s in a King County Library System warehouse.
      The library system should donate it to the City of Burien so it can be re-installed in its original location at the old library/new community center.

        ditto, reinstall the sculpture in the courtyard that was made to protect it. I can not wait until I am at the age to be able to use the new community center/old library. those who get to use it sooner are very fortunate you have a natural, beautiful, and architecturally superior building in comparison to that cold glass and metal monstrosity downtown. I leave for 4 years to go to college and come home to this, I am still in tears.
