  1. Appleby Library, is our favorite library in Augusta. Kids coming in and out. Feeling safe without anyone sleeping in the stacks. The staff is wonderful and will get you what you’re looking for. My elderly mother prefers it because of the size and community feel that it offers.

  2. Is there a reason why you mixed news about the library (that does need to be cared for… it’s a great one!) with “in other news….” where no one will read it if they skip reading the library story.

    • Remember them well…one concert only too well. We lived two doors down Johns Road in a cottage back of the big white columned house back in the early 1980’s. One night we took the black lab with us and she was as content as we were to lay on the blanket with us and enjoy the music. Until our cat showed up and started meowing loudly to try and find us in the crowd. Don’t think we went back after that scene.
