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
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
to view other churches, synagogues,
and other religious buildings,
from around the world.
What a wonderful way to ensure that this lovely building still continues to serve the community. Truly inspirational and very beautiful.ReplyDelete
Thanks Elaine....after writing this post, I believe I will search out more libraries in all these small communities that surround me. I have always had a fascination and love of books....Delete
Beautiful church and wonderful pictures.
Greetings from Poland.
Hello Lucja... Thank you for your commentDelete
WOW, Meggie, every one needs a Round Top Library! Your photos are wonderful and their video gave me a lump in my throat. Thanks so much!ReplyDelete
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.Delete
What a great community!ReplyDelete
I'm truly blessed to be living here...thanks for your comment.Delete
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.ReplyDelete
As I have said before, "I'm very fortunate to be in a community that is surrounded by love and commitment".Delete
Such a pretty church. Glad it wasn't torn down and that it is being used.ReplyDelete
And to think.... for 30 years, it was sitting in a pasture being, used as a barn.Delete
It's always sad to see a church abandoned like that but so good it has found a new used and home.ReplyDelete
I love little white churches. So glad to see one converted so it can continued to be used in the community!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful place. Nice to see that it was repurposed and its worth realized!ReplyDelete
That is so nice. Love your pictures. I'm sure you will enjoy going in the library when you go back.ReplyDelete
Wow that was some move and restoration! I hope you go back to visit one day! :)ReplyDelete
