Grande Prairie boasts a shiny, new public library but I haven’t noticed it during my visit.
Instead, it’s this street library that’s charmed me. Within a few blocks of my brother’s home in OBrien Lake neighborhood, is The Book Barn. Like the street libraries I admire so much in Victoria, this one reads:
‘Take a book,
Leave a book’.
Grande Prairie is an industry town surrounded by expansive farmland. Perhaps this library’s host-family grew up on a dairy farm?
Do they miss getting up at the crack of dawn to do chores & milk cows?
Just around the corner & down the street is another gem!
Small town friendliness must be catching. I also figure this has gotta be a kid-oriented neighborhood.
This particular street library has a sign that reads:
This library trend is so big there’s a website dedicated to it 🙂 It even boasts maps of street libraries all over the world!
Who knew there were so many?
Is your neighborhood represented?
I’m sure this is a sure sign that there’s hope for humanity.
