Our town is small – the only town on a small island...
...accessible only by water or air...
...and 60-plus miles from the nearest community of any size.
People here are commercial fishers, for the most part.
We just got a new pavement on Main Street this summer.
This fall we will be getting a new library.
The old library will be closing for good this Friday.
Since long before I moved here the library has shared space in the 1960’s-vintage municipal building. That's it there on the second floor, left corner.

|Flossy is a frequent visitor.|
The facility is small, crowded, worn, heavily used...
Flossy calls the library the town living room.
The new library will be fabulous when it opens in late September.
Flossy is hoping that there is an position on the staff for official mascot so she can continue to go along with us to check out books as there will be no dogs allowed in the new library, alas.
