Going In To Spencer Public Library
This top picture is taken in the adult room, in the section where they shelve the western fiction. Dewey liked this area and slept there often. The middle picture is a tribute to their Carnegie library. We had a Carnegie library which I have posted about before. It was on Main St. in Pomona and was torn down years ago. We have a picture of it downstairs if you are interested in looking at it. This Carnegie library in Spencer was on the spot where the library stands today. They memorialized it in this tribute beautifully. I'd like to do something like that for our old Carnegie as well. The only Carnegie that I know still exists in this area is in Upland. They recently restored it and it stands proudly today.
The third picture is of Dewey. I don't know what happened, I must have been shaking because it is so blurred. (Maybe I was in shock because it was so nice and cool in this town!) This beautiful portrait stands on the wall to your right as you enter the library.
