Above is the Reading Public Library, formerly a large school. It was a very overcast day when we entered through the back entrance.
The local history room is on the main floor. Photo is of my husband, not a patron.
The above photo and the two following are in the same room. The collection is mostly for Reading, but other nearby towns are included.
The below photo is in the second room. Shown is a large collection of the Vital Records for Massachusetts, otherwise known as, the tan books. In addition, there is a table, chair, microfilm reader (I believe) and other equipment. A person was there, so I didn't pay a lot of attention.
Nice and sunny when we left. I will be returning and hope to retake the front of the library and a few other photos inside. Well, I did return on August 29, 2015, and this is what greeted us.
