Restored Church Becomes Library... for InSPIRED Sunday

 
The is a love story....
 of how one small community
 turned an abandoned church building, into a library.
 
 
It was just by chance that I came across the building,
on one of my drives to a neighboring town.
The community boasts a population of 90.
 
My dear readers, please take time to click HERE
and view the gallery of wonderful photos,
 of how this church was cut apart
 and moved.
 
 
It is a beautiful setting with a lovely butterfly garden.
 
 
 
 
Unfortunately, I was passing through town when the library was closed.
I will definitely plan another trip....library hours are
afternoons only.

    1. Hi Tom....that's exactly how I felt when viewing the library web site. And, that is why I called it "a love story". It's part of what makes living on the prairie so special.

  5. Such an interesting post. I enjoy the library here, but nothing as note worthy as the history behind this. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy a small part of it.
