Public Libraries

Lake Placid, NY public library

What will be the future of public libraries in the world of Kindle? In order to check my email, I sought out public libraries when I had time. I came across some really wonderful historic public library buildings on this trip.

With the world changing so fast with the internet and local government budgets strangling in a sea of red , it would be tragic if public libraries such as these shutter its doors.

Here is a sampling of a few neat ones . . .

Two great views of Mirror Lake from the library windows (above and below). What a wonderful spot to read a book or just day-dream.

Bucksport Public Library, ME - looks like a church

Reading room feels like an exclusive Men's Club
