Little Country Libraries

February 3, 2010 at 4:09 am 2 comments

I love how different these little country libraries are, despite their outward appearances. The Dixfield Ludden Library, which David and I visited during our annual Maine vacation with friends, was similar in size to the Mexico Library down the road, but offered a completely different atmosphere. Where the Mexico Library was quiet, cramped, and thoughtful, Dixfield Ludden was boisterous with light and life, even though the early September after school crowd hadn’t yet arrived.

We met two friendly staff persons and explored the sunny, open two-room floor plan. I was impressed by the graphic novel (and single issue comic) collection in the kids’ room, which David sat down to read while I snuck around, snapping photos.
