WW - Townsend Public Library

I love the architecture in New England.  Sometimes it can be a bit provincial, but when it's done right, it is beautiful and classy.  The library in the neighboring town of Townsend, MA is a wonderful new architectural specimen.



I would love to read in this round room.



The library's entrance is in the back and the library is adjoined by the town meeting hall.  You can see that kids like to throw snowballs at the brick wall.



Isn't the entrance to the library grand?



The adjoining Senior Center is also gorgeous. I would love to be a senior here!



And I love how the library is nestled amongst tall pine trees. So cozy!



Visit by Wordless Wednesday or 5 Minutes for Mom or 7 Clown Circus (wordful) for more participants.

I like it - it's such a pretty building (I felt like such a girl saying that!) But it has a feel to it that makes it a likeable building. Great shots!

That's a really great place for a library. Lovely scenery and quiet enough for reading.

Oh wow! that is gorgeous! It is so peaceful looking. I would love to visit New England sometime to see the wonderful architecture. Around here we don't have very many brick buildings, they are mostly limestone.
Have a great day!
