When O’Half and I went on a little vacation last week, we headed
to upstate New York where we first met.
I grew up on Lake George and it’s still the prettiest spot in the
world as far as I’m concerned.
As a bit of interest we decided to visit the area libraries in the
county–Warren County–the libraries I had never visited. I went
to our local library all the time, but had never investigated the other
libraries “out of town” when I was growing up.
I’ll post these gradually, but it just so happens I’ll start with my
favorite visit of all–and I’ll tell you why at the end.
This little beauty was beautiful! The
tiny village of Diamond Point is right
on the shores of Lake George and about
six miles south of Bolton Landing.
Take a photo tour with me . . .
When I first walked into the library, the drama section–
the 800s–was the first thing I saw–yea!
and, and . . .I couldn’t believe it—and
you won’t either because it’s so blurry (!)
but—there was a book of PLAYS by
Susan Glaspell. Now you tell me which
library is going to have those on the shelf! I was thrilled!
To celebrate my find I bought a little
box of notecards with a sketch of the
Hillview Free Library.
I thought this little library was so inviting I could have stayed for a few hours to browse
and read. Nice.
