A Peaceful Place

That perfect tranquillity of life, which is nowhere to be found but in retreat, a faithful friend, and a good library.
.... Aphra Behn

Gift of Time

Wanda Larson and her family donated a beautiful 1835 grandfather clock and an antique rocking chair to the library. Tom Plackett, Nancy Dewey, Richard Buse, and John Houston worked to settle the clock in its new home.

You say you want a revolution

Max invites everyone to stop by the library tent at Pells Park on the 4th of July. (He will not be there. He will be enjoying the relative peace and tranquility of the air-conditioned library; but still, do stop by our tent in the park and say "hello.")
The Paxton Carnegie Library will be closed July 4th and 5th.
