My mom and I went to Maine last fall, in part because of E.B. White. It seemed only fitting to visit the library in his town to see the illustrations he donated and to meander. Great library with beautiful light.

Beautiful. Daylight is all around. Layout is exceptional. My wife is on our local library board so we went in for a look. We will be visiting again and it will be nice to spend a bit more time.

Lovely little library in this itsy bitsy town. 100 year old building, we were told, that has been updated with skylights. Amazing that such a small town has such a large, lovely library. Then again, this is EB White territory.
