|Our library has been around as long as I can remember.|
It's a Carnegie library and is a wonderful place. I spent
a lot of time there as a teen being shushed by Mrs.Hanson.
|An addition has been added and I spent a bit of time there this afternoon.|
|While the new side is finally open, the older side is getting revamped. This is one of the seating areas with a great view through the floor to ceiling windows of the river.|
|These copper fish decorate the staircase leading to the lower level.|
|A faux fireplace.|
|Cool lights throughout and a view through a side window of the old gal.|
|I love this deck! It's going to be so cool to sit out here and watch all the activity on our downtown boardwalk.|
|I'm a Kindle user and download all my reading material from the library but also love to spend time reading magazines there.|
|This is a huge picture of the Kalamazoo river that winds its way through Allegan. Look closely and you can see the old/new trestle bridge in the background.|
|So spacious and bright.|
|This is another shot of the decking on the river looking toward the parking lot behind the older section.|
I'm also very, very happy that we kept the old gal. She's a beauty and those of us that have wonderful memories (besides being shushed) are glad she'll be there for many years to come.
