Since the revolutionary days when Benjamin Frankin helped establish the first public library, American's have taken great pride in the construction of public libraries. The public library holds a central role in a community. The library building is often a symbol of great civic pride.
This gallery will show pictures of library buildings in towns that I have time to photograph. Libraries range from grandeous marble structures to works that push the envelope of modern design.
Unlike public libraries that have access to the public troff, I depend on advertising to build this site. The advertising buttons for this page are BookSwim (which allows you to rent books online), Netflix lets you rent DVDs online.
