This Thanksgiving I visited my in-laws in Norwood, New York. It is located in St. Lawrence County with about 1,600 people living there. I am always fascinated by ist small library (as seen in the photo). I love these libraries because they strive to help the public even when funds are not available. In a recent election, the village elected to keep the library open by creating a special taxing district. (http://www.watertowndailytimes.com/article/20111116/DCO01/311169958). This was exciting news! As much as I love having access to so many large libraries with so many resources, these are the ones who paved a way for the bigger libraries. I admire their dedication and service to their small communities. These are the ones who should be applauded for their hard work! Thank you.
