Even though I usually can’t check out books, I like to visit libraries when I travel. This weekend I was in Rockport, and I found a rather unassuming building with a treasure inside. They had a full wall of shelves for a book drive! Imagine that!
There’s a lovely reading room, with a wall treatment that echoes the beach outside, and has plenty of comfy chairs.
Here’s the sale wall, with a small bookshelf of newer, more expensive books outside the room as well. These were one sale for a quarter, and how can you pass that up?
I spotted this nautical decoration on to top of one the shelves.
There’s a list of rules for using the typewriter, so it must get some use. One includes that you can share it with someone, as long as you talk quietly. And for a pretty reasonable 25 cents a page!
I was tempted to get a library card mostly for the heck of it, since I come here once a year, but resisted, since I was leaving that day anyway. Do any of you have vacation libraries? Maybe next year.
