in praise of small town libraries

In New England, in Autumn, there is a lot that is beautiful. Here is a neat article about small town libraries in Western MA with an attractive slide show to go along with it. I’ve made a Flickr set of the libraries I’ve been to with one photo per library. They’re not all small town libraries, but they’re good for looking at as well. [thanks rob!]

    Here are a few more. Not all are in small towns, but all have some character.

    Ah, New England. Sometimes I really miss it. Northampton’s public library is beautiful; a Tudor building, all dark wood on the inside. I was at Smith when I lived there, and I didn’t go to the public library much since I mostly used the campus libraries, but it’s a lovely building.
