Mexico Library -Mexico, Maine, that is

September 17, 2009 at 1:27 am 1 comment

My initial impression of Mexico Public Library was that it’s like a button: small, practical, and appealing.  Like many of the libraries I’ve visited recently, Mexico Library is a one-room affair with fiction and non-fiction stacks housed in the center and a children’s room down in the basement.  First thing I noticed upon walking in was the quiet: one staff person was present and two patrons sat before the Internet computers.  No one was talking.  My friends and I felt compelled to whisper.

My favorite features of the library were the tiny bridge leading from the parking lot to the side entrance, the sizable collection of rocks (which, unfortunately, was difficult to enjoy behind the doors of the glass cabinet), a section dedicated to westerns and, surprising for such a tiny library, a dedicated YA room with two lounge chairs and a Internet computer
