More than just a place to borrow books

Updated: Jul 18, 2020

You may wonder, why do small towns need libraries? Why not go to the big city for a greater variety of books and resources? This way of thinking only makes sense if you think of a library as just a place to borrow books. Visiting Kezar Falls Library, I learned that it is a place for much, much more than that.

Kezar Falls Library is a non-profit entity with a board of directors that serves the towns of Parsonsfield & Porter, Maine, but everyone from the surrounding towns are welcomed. Kim Libby, a South Hiram resident, is a long time volunteer, board of directors member, and she took over as Kezar Falls librarian a little bit over a month ago.
