283. Richardson Memorial Library, Sugar Hill, New Hampshire

If you know Sugar Hill, New Hampshire, at all, you probably know it for Polly's Pancake Parlor, with its wonderful food. But you should know that it also has a museum, and next door to the museum a very nice small library, tucked into a building with the police department.

My sister and I were waiting when the librarian and her husband arrived to open the library at 2 p.m. The first thing we learned was that a lightning hit recently caused the library to lose all power and blew out most of the computers. Ouch! It's good that no worse damage happened to the library and the surroundings.

The largest scrapbooks I've ever seen hold clippings, pictures, and such, documenting the local school and the Community Church.

The children's area has a green "reading chair" with the words Create, Wish, Magic, Success, Believe. The assistant librarian told us that the librarian has a background in education and has done a great deal to promote children's reading. She sounds like just what is needed!

Audio books are popular here. Interlibrary loans are available and widely used.

I like the little policemen that welcome one to the building
that houses the police station and the library.
