  2. Oh wow...this looks like my kind of place. Small and simple. Large libraries definitely have their place, Deb, but I favor places like this. Very inviting.

    Thanks for sharing this, and for stopping by my blog, too! Have a wonderful day!

  3. This library is way, way out in the middle of nowhere, in far west Texas. You need libraries out there, I think.

  4. This library was...well, the only word I can think of is hospitable. Friendly. Helpful without being overly intrusive.

  5. Ondered why you called it second best and at the end I see why. Reminds me of our local comunity one.

  6. The sign is what I saw first. Intriguing, I thought. What do they base that on? I wondered. Apparently it is an annual award for best, second best, and third best big and small libraries.

  8. Wonderful! It looks very inviting and cozy. I always carry a book with me everywhere, a real old fashioned paper book.

  9. Ah Great little library. Yesterday my boys and I spent time at the library for "story time". Always a great time and educational too!

  10. It's not my public library, but I feel as proud of it as if it were my own. I saw it when I visited in Alpine last summer.

  11. One of our city branches looks as small as this one, but not nearly as beautiful!

  15. It does look wonderful, and friendly. I still haven't got over being asked to move on at the Houston Public Library. I like the metal work in the outside area-what is the big shape though? I can see books and cactus.

  16. Louise, have I forgotten the story about being asked to move on at the Houston Public Library? I need to hear it again, I think.

  17. I'm not sure about the metal work in the outside area....wish I knew more.

  18. What a coincidence and contrast! I've posted about a library too on my Sat. Snapshot post today. Anyway, your lovely little library looks so cozy. Just like to snuggle in there among the books. ;)

  19. Great library! Big things come in small packages!

  20. Wonderful! I love all the cozy little spots...I could curl up and read in any of them...except the ones with really small chairs. LOL

  24. Oh, oh! Is that water in the library? I'm hoping that part is outside in a reading area in the shade. Guess i'd better figure out the winner of this contest! Whose #1?

  26. Yes, I should have probably explained that the water is from recently watered plants in the outdoor area.
