I have a wonderful local library. It never disappoints, but the modern structure can't compete with the North Adams Public Library in MA. The mansion was the home of Sanford and Eliza Blackinton from 1869 thru 1896. In 1897 the mansion was purchased by the city for the public library and opened the following year.
Wouldn't you love to checkout a book and settle in the parlor to read the first few chapters?
How cool are these stacks!
Another great parlor for reading!

The sun wasn't co-operating, but this one was very cool.
And so you don't feel cheated by no quilt content (and as a reward for sticking with me 'til the end), I spied this sweet string star crib quilt in an antique shop stop. Sorry to say it didn't come home with me.
